Helen H. Glaser

Student Essay Competition



NOTE: The deadline for the 2019 competition has passed. We will provide information about the 2020 competition when it becomes available!

The UW AOA Chapter would like to invite you to participate in the 2018 Helen H. Glaser Student Essay Competition. This is open to all UWSOM students and is a great opportunity to share your writing about medicine. Winning essays will be published in The Pharos magazine and authors awarded cash prizes. Entries must be submitted using the online form on the AOA website (alphaomegaalpha.org) no later than January 15, 2019. Please refer to the attached flier for more details on the essay requirements. 

Additionally, our UW AOA chapter has decided that we would like to recognize the literary talent of our student body by compiling various artistic works, including essays, poems, etc. into our own published collection. If you are willing to have your work be a part of this compilation, please email UW AOA your piece with your name and entering class year to eslager@uw.edu. This can include any piece of written work done by you! Please let us know if you have any questions.
