Student Essay Contest

Have you had learning experiences at UMD that were memorable and meaningful, as well as challenging, inspirational, and creative? If so, the UMD Academy of Excellence in Teaching and Learning (AETL) would like to hear from you about them. We invite you to submit an essay (no more than 1,000 words, double spaced) sharing the exceptional learning experience that you had. The top three essays, as judged by AETL, will receive a monetary award (1st place: $500, 2nd place: $250, 3rd place: $100). The award winners will also be invited for a panel discussion with AETL members about the characteristics of memorable teaching and learning moments. All currently enrolled undergraduate students are eligible to apply.
