BCM is pleased to launch an annual Essay Contest for members of the BC community: alumni, students, faculty, and staff. Submissions must be original unpublished works of 1,5003,000 words. The winning entry will be published in the Summer 2002 issue of BCM and the author will receive an award of $1,000. Other entries may also be selected for publication, and appropriate awards will be made in those instances.

The theme for the 2002 competition is "Hope," and the editors are looking for treatments of that subject that are engaging and enlightening.

Entries must be received by March 1, 2002. The winner will be notified by April 2. Please include a daytime phone number. Entries will not be returned unless accompanied by a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
