Dear UM Student:

If you are a junior in good standing and have a passion for liberal arts education, I hope you will submit an entry for the first annual Phi Beta Kappa Association of Western Montana Essay Contest. The application form asks you to write a short essay (2-3 pages) that addresses the value of freedom of inquiry and liberty of thought in modern education. The winner will receive a tuition scholarship of $1,000 for next academic year, so there's a nice incentive.

The application form for the essay contest is located here. If you have any questions, please contact me at ashby.kinch@umontana.edu

With best regards,
