ASHA invites students enrolled in any communication sciences and disorders program—undergraduate, post-baccalaureate or entry-level graduate—to enter ASHA's 2014 Student Ethics Essay Award competition.
The goal of the essay contest is to encourage students to think about ethical decision making and foster awareness of situations that could pose ethical dilemmas as they prepare for CSD careers.
The 2014 competition topic is supervisory relationships. Entrants select one of two potential conflict scenarios—one related to audiology, the other to speech-language pathology—for their essays. Using the 2010 Code of Ethics, students must identify the principle(s) and rule(s) they believe are violated in the scenarios; provide a rationale for their choice; and propose a decision-making process to resolve the ethical dilemma.
The three winning authors will receive a cash prize; certificate of achievement; one-year membership to the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association; invitations to the NSSLHA luncheon and awards ceremony at the 2014 ASHA Convention; and recognition in the Leader and on the ASHA website. The first-place winner also receives a complimentary student registration to the 2014 convention.
Students must submit their entries to their CSD program director by Friday, April 11. Each program director may select up to five student essays for submission to ASHA. Members of the ASHA Board of Ethics review the essays and select the winners.
For complete program information—including eligibility requirements, submission guidelines and application forms—visit the Student Ethics Essay Award webpage.
