UCCS Ethics Essay Competition

Apply ethical decision making and writing skills to win $$$$ for a 1,000 words by competing in the annual Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at UCCS Ethics Essay Competition.

The annual ethics essay contest requires students to analyze the ethical issue of a business case and make recommendations using principle-based ethics.  A panel of community leaders and faculty serve as judges and select the final winners who clearly articulate their analysis and present viable recommendations.

Eligibility: Any enrolled UCCS undergraduate or graduate student from any major or college. No cost to enter the competition

Format: There is no registration required. An ethics scenario and essay instructions will be posted the day of the start of the competition. Students are encouraged to seek out members of the faculty and professional community for their experiences that relate to the ethics scenario. Essays will be checked for grammar and spelling and essays that do not meet standard will be removed from the competition. Essays are due at the time posted on the last day of the competition.

The ethics case & instructions will be revealed on this web page after March 1, 2017. Essays are due by April 17, 2017 11pm (23:00) Mountain Time to emoore@uccs.edu. Winners will be announced the week before finals of Spring Semester.
