Students in public affairs and public policy graduate programs are invited to submit their papers authored in 2014 or 2015 on any public and administrative ethics topic, including corruption, integrity, social equity, corporate responsibility, and politics. Faculty members may also nominate student paper(s) for submission. Conference papers, term papers, and journal manuscripts are eligible for submission (literature reviews, case studies, and review essays are ineligible for entry). Please note that only one submission per student is allowed, and the paper should be written entirely by the student and not co-authored. The paper should not exceed 20 pages in length, including citations and references, and should follow APA format. Each paper will be peer reviewed and judged for its quality, methodology, importance, and policy implications along with clarity in writing.

The best paper will be awarded a prize of $250 and the author will receive a certificate of recognition from SEIGOV at the 2016 ASPA Conference, and will be announced in media publications. The section will provide financial support for the winner to attend ASPAโ€™s national conference in Seattle, WA from March 18 -20, 2016.
