Essay Contest

JASNA is pleased to announce the winners of the 2014 Essay Contest.  Please check back in November to see the topic for the 2015 Essay Contest.

To foster the study and appreciation of Jane Austen, JASNA conducts an annual student Essay Contest, with support generously provided by the Sonia Raiziss Giop Charitable Foundation.

Students interested in the life and works of Jane Austen are encouraged to enter. The Essay Contest is open to students world-wide at the high school, college/university, and graduate school levels of study.  Entrants do not need to be members of JASNA.  Students must be enrolled full-time or part-time in coursework during one or more semesters/quarters of the contest year.  Home-schooled students at the high school level are also eligible.  Part-time is defined for the college/university level as a minimum of six credit hours and for the graduate level as a minimum of three credit hours leading to an advanced degree.
