III. Fabilli Hoffer essay contest
The topic for this year’s Fabilli Hoffer essay contest is: The End of Civility. This is the only Berkeley prize administered by the UC Berkeley Prizes and Honors Office that is open to staff and faculty, as well as students. At least $3,000 will be available for the judge to award this year. Last year the judge selected three winners. In these tough economic times, why not try writing a brief essay (500 words or less) and submitting it for a cash prize?

More details about the contest is listed on our website at: http://students.berkeley.edu/finaid/undergraduates/hofferprize.htm.

The deadline to submit an essay in-person to 229 Sproul Hall is December 1 at 4pm. Winners will be announced in February 2011.
