Sara Pool, a second-year graduate student in speech-language pathology at George Washington University, attended ASHA’s 2015 convention as the first-place winner of the 2015 Student Ethics Essay Award. “Whether you’re a seasoned professional or graduate student, the connections you make with others in our professions offer invaluable benefits and provide myriad opportunities for your career,” she writes in a post on The ASHA Leader Blog that describes her convention networking experience.
Also attending #ASHA15 was second-place winner Kelly Meehan-Doig, who says she was “enlightened and exhausted” after her first convention.
Pool and Meehan-Doig were able to attend convention in part because of their essays—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.
ASHA invites communication sciences and disorders students—enrolled in any undergraduate, post-baccalaureate or entry-level graduate program—to enter the 2016 ethics essay competition, which explores ethical dilemmas of client abandonment. Students must submit their entries to their program directors (not to ASHA) by April 15.
