Students: Your ethics essay could win you free registration to the 2018 ASHA Convention, monetary prizes and membership in the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA).
All communication sciences and disorders students—enrolled in any U.S. undergraduate, post-baccalaureate or entry-level clinical graduate program—are invited to enter ASHA’s 2018 Student Ethics Essay Award competition, which explores ethical challenges related to disclosure, misrepresentation and conflict of interest.
The two 2017 first-place winners, speech-language pathology students Malayna Bailey and Ashley Peltier, were excited to have the opportunity to network at the convention, as well as to collect resources and gain inspiration for working in the professions.
Writing the essays was also valuable to the winners. Bailey felt her “day-to-day understanding of ethics increased,” and she now carefully considers the “ethical implications of determining a client’s outcomes in therapy.” Peltier says that her essay research pushed her “to consider each principle as it might relate to actual clinical practice” and that the principles “became more than just abstractions; they came to life.”
The first-place winner receives $750 and a complimentary student registration to that year’s convention. Second- and third-place winners receive $500 and $250, respectively. All winners receive a one-year NSSLHA membership.
Students submit essays and applications online, and must notify their program director of their participation. Visit our website for a full description of essay topics, requirements and submission guidelines—and to read winning essays from previous years—or contact ethics@asha.org.
