The English Department administers a biannual essay contest open to current GW freshmen, sophomores and juniors interested in parliamentary procedure. To enter, you must compose an essay of three to four hundred words on some aspect of parliamentary procedure as taught in Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised.
The essay should be submitted under a nom de plume with a cover letter identifying its author, with contact information. The essay should be placed in an envelope labeled "Kilgore Competition" and delivered to the English Department main office (Rome 760) by noon on Thursday March 12.
The contest is judged by a small faculty panel. The author of the winning essay is awarded the Kilgore scholarship for up to two years.
