Essay competition

Student Essay Competition

Each year, CiS hosts an essay competition for students to enter, either individually, in pairs or as a group. Topics are suggested in the spring, entries are submitted over the summer and judged in early autumn.

The essay competition is designed to encourage promising young thinkers and writers to explore different science-faith topics.
