Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?

Because the competition includes professional interviews, we encourage students to dress anywhere from business casual to business professional. A good rule is to wear what you would to a job interview.

Who selects the winners?

A council of faculty members from different departments and programs will interview students, lead the roundtable discussions, evaluate the writing samples, and determine the recipients of the award.
