Students have until April 12 to enter ASHA's 2013 Student Ethics Essay Award writing competition, open to undergraduate and graduate students in communication sciences and disorders who are members of the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association.
The essay competition offers students the opportunity to think about ethical decision making as they prepare to start careers in audiology; speech-language pathology; or speech, language and hearing sciences. Responding to the essay question increases students' awareness of situations that could pose ethical dilemmas and the options available for addressing them.
The 2013 essay topic is workplace dilemmas, a term that includes power abuse (being asked to perform tasks beyond a clinician's educational training and experience; unreasonably high workload expectations; or requests to complete inappropriate documentation). In their essays, student should consider the ethical issues raised by workplace dilemmas.
Essays must be the original, unpublished work of a single author. They may not exceed 1,000 words, and must be submitted through a NSSLHA chapter advisor or regional councilor by Friday, April 12.
Authors of the top three winning essays will receive a cash award ($750, $500 and $250) and a certificate of recognition. Winning essays will be announced in the Leader and published on the ASHA website.
