Christine Delfino, a second-year graduate student in speech-language pathology at Arizona State University, attended ASHA’s 2014 Convention as the first-place winner of the 2014 Student Ethics Essay Award. “It was a rewarding and enriching experience to examine the Code of Ethics in greater detail, and I encourage graduate students to enter the contest,” she writes in a post on ASHAsphere that describes the essay contest and her convention experience.
Delfino was able to attend convention in part because of her essay—the first-place winner receives $750 and a complimentary student registration to that year’s convention. Second- and third-place finishers receive $500 and $250, respectively. All winners receive a one-year membership to the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association and other awards and recognition.
“I wasn’t prepared for just how amazing my first ASHA convention experience was going to be,” Delfino writes.
ASHA invites communication sciences and disorders students—enrolled in any undergraduate, post-baccalaureate or entry-level graduate program—to enter the 2015 ethics essay competition, which explores the ethical considerations of confidentiality. Students must submit their entries to their program directors (not to ASHA) by April 10.
