PAEA/JAAPA Student Writing Competition
The PAEA/JAAPA Student Writing Competition was created to recognized outstanding papers authored by PA students. Students are eligible for a $500 prize and the opportunity to present at the 2013 AAPA IMPACT Conference in Washington, D.C., on May 25-29.
All first- and second-year PA students, as well as recent graduates from PAEA member programs and/or institutional colleague programs, are eligible. Papers must have been written while enrolled in a PA program. For jointly authored papers, all authors must meet eligibility criteria.
Students may submit their paper and disclosure forms on the submission website by 11:59 p.m., EST, March 1. Contact Rachel Hamann, research assistant, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Will Schweinle, chair of the Student Writing Competition, email@example.com with any questions.
All papers selected for an award will be subject to a plagiarism review through one of the available plagiarism detection websites. If, based on the originality report and the judgment of the Student Writing Competition Subcommittee, the paper is plagiarized, it will not receive any award and the sponsoring department chair will be notified.
