Shannon Goodwin, an undergraduate student in speech-language pathology at Texas State University, attended the ASHA 2016 Convention as the first-place winner of the 2016 Student Ethics Essay Award (SEEA).
Goodwin found this first-time experience to be an extremely valuable networking and learning opportunity. But the best part of #ASHA16 for Goodwin was having her winning essay scenario be one of four featured in the Board of Ethics’ convention session. “It was slightly overwhelming and powerfully inspiring, all at once,” she says. “What a cool experience!”
Goodwin 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.
ASHA invites communication sciences and disorders students—enrolled in any U.S. undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, or entry-level clinical graduate program—to enter the 2017 SEEA competition, which explores ethical challenges in the area of independent and evidence-based clinical judgment.
This year, essays and applications are submitted exclusively online. The entry deadline is noon on April 14.
