Naval Institute, NPS Foundation Seek Entries Into Essay Contest

By Javier Chagoya

The NPS Foundation, in partnership with the U.S. Naval Institute, announced their annual NPSF/USNI Essay Contest open to all NPS students, faculty and staff. The jointly-sponsored contest, started in 2016, encourages the communication of critical thinking applied to issues of relevance to U.S. national security and the military profession.

NPS Foundation Executive Director Tim Callaham, whose organization already recognizes NPS student excellence through the Foundation’s sponsored awards program, says he knows there is a lot of competent, passionate writers on campus.

“We really want the call for essays to be a robust contest, and we can only have that when students submit papers. There are definitely enough military related issues out there to expound your thoughts about,” said Callaham.

For U.S. NPS students, the essays can be directly related to a thesis or recent operational experience. And for NPS faculty or staff members, the essays could address an issue of particular relevance to the military profession. All previously published essays are ineligible.

Only one winner from NPS will be selected to have his or her essay published in USNI’s prestigious Proceedings magazine, in addition to a $5,000 cash prize.

The contest deadline is March 31, 2018. For more information, check out the contest website.
