In Honor of George Washington Carver

     The African American Studies Program at Iowa State University invites submissions to the 2005 Legacy of Excellence Competition.

In honor of the memory of George Washington Carver and to uphold his legacy we invite undergraduate students at Iowa State University to enter this competition.

We seek essays, creative works and scientific projects that demonstrate a commitment to excellence and in some way relate to the African American heritage.  Within this framework we urge participants to think as broadly and creatively as possible. Submissions will be judged by a panel of ISU faculty.  Awards will be made in two categories:  1) Essays and 2) creative works/scientific projects.  Winners in each category will receive:

 1st Place         $500.00

 2nd Place        $300.00

 3rd Place         $200.00

            All entries must be submitted to the African American Studies Office in 208 Carver Hall by 3:00 p.m. on Monday, April 10th, 2006.

          This competition is open only to undergraduate students at Iowa State University who are enrolled for the Spring Semester 2006.
