ABC Student Writing Contest

Looking for an opportunity to showcase your students’ talents? The Association for Business Communication invites undergraduate student submissions for the 2017 Student Writing Contest.  The case and instructions can be found at  Each member of ABC can submit up to two student entries by the deadline of midnight on Friday, April 28, 2017. 

A panel of academic readers will review all qualifying entries and determine five finalists based on the following criteria:

  • Demonstrates a clear understanding of the receiver
  • Accomplishes the purpose of the message as outlined in the prompt
  • Exhibits quality organization
  • Demonstrates superior mastery of business conventions 

A panel of business professionals will then read the finalists’ entries and select the winning responses. At ABC’s October 2017 annual international conference in Dublin, winners will receive a plaque. In addition, the 1st place winner will receive $300, the 2nd place winner will receive $200, and the 3rd place winner will receive $100. Winners will be informed mid-summer 2017. 

We would like to congratulate Kelly Grant from Tulane University for submitting the winning prompt!
