Call for entries -- The 2003 Ketchum Wordsmith Award
The prize: a 10 week summer (2004) paid internship at Ketchum's headquarters office in the New York City
What you have to do: compose an Op-Ed on the following topic: "Does Public Relations Deserve a Seat at the Executive Board Table?"
Open to: all college juniors and seniors with a 3.0 (or higher) GPA, members of PRSSA
Deadline: Monday, November 17, 2003
Apply: Download the application (PDF format)
More information are available on PRSSA's national website.
NOTE: The PDF application says the competition is open only to "all New York, New Jersey and Connecticut college juniors and seniors"; I checked with Jacob Burke, the National PRSSA Webmaster, and he confirmed that the competition is open to all college juniors and seniors (all other criteria are in the announcement).
UPDATE: If you don't feel comfortable with the competition's topic, here's another chance to win an internship.
