Common Readings 2020: No One Is Too Small To Make A Difference

2019 Common Reading Essay Contest

We invite you to submit an essay of not more than 750 words on any topic you wish having to do with our common reading, Cathy O'Neil's Weapons of Math Destruction. Your essay must be relevant to Weapons of Math Destruction —otherwise there are no restrictions on topic or style. All essays will be read and judged by members of the Hofstra faculty. The top three finalists will receive iPads, presented by Dr. O'Neil during her Welcome Week address to the first-year class. In addition, the top three finalists and runners-up will be invited to a small luncheon with Dr. O'Neil following her address to the first-year class.

Submission deadline: Friday, August 16, 2019
