An essay contest about Academy Square gives BYU students the opportunity to earn up to $640 in cash and prizes.
The first prize includes $540 in prizes from The Frame Works and Goldsmith Co. Jewelers, $100 in cash from The Flower Basket, and dinner for two at The Underground.
The Brigham Young Academy Club, in correlation with novelist Marilyn Brown, is sponsoring the essay contest, “Academy Square: BYU’s Incredible History,” to help keep the Academy alive, according to Mark Axelson, BYA club president.
The Academy essay contest encourages students to think about the value of these buildings for generations yet to come.
“The buildings are a symbol of the high value of education the Latter-day Saint Church places on secular learning, based on correct theological training,” Axelson said.
To enter the contest, send essays to: 2140 JKHB, BYU, Provo, UT 84602. The essays should be postmarked no later than March 16, and include an address and telephone number. For further information about the contest, contact Marilyn Brown at 489-4980.
