The Core Scholars Program is inviting anyone who has taken a Core course to reflect on the materials of the Core Curriculum by creating a Core Reflection. Core Reflections analyze, question, dramatize, interpret and reflect on the materials of the Core Curriculum. Their goal is to heighten understanding of Core topics, explore connections between Core works and relate the Core to the contemporary world. Core Reflections may incude essays, poems, short fiction, graphic novels, paintings, drawings, photography, songs and choreographed dances.
Applications are due Feb. 1. Students who create exceptionally creative and well executed reflections will be honored as 2012 Core Scholars. They will receive $200 prizes and their reflections will be featured on the Core Curriculum website. They will also have the opportunity to choose the following year's Core Scholars.
