2008 Humana Writing Contest Winners

The Institute for Media, Culture and Ethics and the Humana Foundation sponsored a Writing Competition for undergraduate women at Bellarmine University.

The women wrote about "Essential Women's Issues in the 2008 Presidential Campaign"

Congratulations to BU students Christina Clements, Lauren Pieper, Amy Puerto and Shannon Siders for winning the competition.

These students, along with Mr. Ed Manassah, Dr. Gail Henson and several Humana Inc. executives traveled to New York City aboard the Humana corporate jet to attend the luncheon for the 2008 Courage in Journalism Awards of the International Women’s Media Foundation.

Students also met Jim Lehrer’s anchor Judy Woodruff, had lunch with Today Show’s Ann Curry, and saw four remarkable international journalists honored for service under pressure.
