other entries for the student essay competition 2010

other entries for the student essay competition 2010

This year ADM-HEA invited art, design and media students to write an essay addressing the following question: "Learning to live sustainably – how can your subject area contribute?"

We asked for writing that would critically investigate the topic using relevant research materials; reflect their own experiences of art / design / media higher education and present a coherent argument related to their subject area.

The winning submission was written by, Elle Tweedy, a 3rd year Product Design student at the University of Sussex. Elle has been awarded £250 and she has been invited to the Higher Education Academy's Annual Conference along with the winners from the other Subject Centres

You can read Elle’s entry here.

We are delighted to publish this, alongside the other entries that met the criteria.  They provide an important student perspective on the topic.  Elle Tweedy’s essay will also be published in Issue 11 of Networks magazine (due Autumn 2010).

We would like to thank all the students who entered the competition this year and we are pleased to publish those that adhered to the guidelines below.
