Mizzou Advantage Awards

The University of Missouri, Columbia has a long standing tradition of collaboration among the disciplines. Students often find themselves writing between disciplines, and are encouraged to submit these pieces for publication in Artifacts: A Journal of Undergraduate Writing. Student submissions that engage directly with one of the four Mizzou Advantage topics will be eligible for three prizes from Mizzou Advantage.

The Mizzou Advantage initiative builds on this rich history in four deep-seated areas of strength:

Food for the Future: the culture, economics and production of healthy, affordable food

Media of the Future: new ways to communicate, educate and market

One Health/One Medicine: health solutions and the convergence of human/animal medicine

Sustainable Energy: sustainable energy development, distribution and education

Winners will receive : 1st place—$500; 2nd place—$300; 3rd place—$200, will be honored in an awards ceremony at the Campus Writing Program and will be published in Artifacts: A Journal of Undergraduate Writing.
