The Unifying Theme Writing Competition is open to all current UCF undergraduate students. This year’s theme, “The Environment and Global Climate Change: Our Planet. Our Education. Our Future.” asks entrants to consider the ways in which environmental issues intersect with education and the future of the planet. Compositions should address current issue(s) relating to the environment and global climate change, as well as potential solutions. Consider how you as an individual and/or how the nations of the world can improve the current state of our planet’s environmental health.

Work will be judged for its scholarly and/or creative interpretation of the theme. The competition is open to students in all fields, and submissions can reflect research-based, non-fiction, and/or creative perspectives, including scientific studies, essays, poetry, and short stories. All compositions are limited to a maximum of 1,500 words. Students may submit one work only.

Submissions will be judged by a faculty panel based on relevance to the theme, “The Environment and Global Climate Change: Our Planet. Our Education. Our Future.” and on the quality of the composition. All submissions must be original work.
