Call For Submissions in Honor of Ludwig Van Beethoven’s 250th Birthday

Students from throughout Stevens are invited to submit their own academic and/or creative works inspired by Beethoven's life and oeuvre. Such submissions may take any of the following forms: academic essays, artwork, music in a variety of different genres and formats, poetry, creative prose works. One student from each category will be invited to present their work, as part of an ongoing series celebrating Beethoven’s life and works.

Submissions are due by Wednesday, December 2, 2020. Works will be reviewed by a panel of faculty members from the College's faculty between December 2 and December 10, 2020. The contest is judged blindly, so leave your name off the manuscripts and include a separate cover sheet with contact information (name, email, title of your work). Only previously unpublished work will be considered. You must be a student at Stevens Institute of Technology to be eligible, though the contest is open to any student from any department.
