The Learning Commons at Bowling Green State University has announced events to commemorate The National Day on Writing on Oct. 20.
"IMPACT BGSU: Discussions on Sustainability," a short film documentary, will premiere that day. The Learning Commons is also sponsoring an online contest. All BGSU students, faculty, and staff are welcome to submit their original work (essays, short stories, research papers, poetry, visual art, films, music, etc.) in response to the topic Sustainability.
The Learning Commons decided to use sustainability as a subject to engage the BGSU community on the impact that environmental consciousness plays in their lives. As part of the First Year Experience Program on campus, BGSU students have been assigned to read "No Impact Man" by Colin Beaven, which explores his journey to create a sustainable, environmentally-friendly lifestyle in New York City. Using the Beaven's journey as inspiration, the "IMPACT BGSU" explores the point of view of everyday BGSU students and their relationship to environmentalism.
The third annual National Day on Writing is an officially recognized day to acknowledge the importance that composition plays in our everyday lives. The event is sponsored by the National Council for Teachers of English (NCTE), a professional association of educators in English Studies, Literacy, and Language Arts located in Urbana, Ill. In an effort to acknowledge all of these contributions, NTCE created an online gallery. "IMPACT BGSU: Discussions on Sustainability" will be available in the online gallery this month.
The Learning Commons is accepting online submissions through Oct. 16 at http://galleryofwriting.org/galleries/3223585. First prize is an Amazon Kindle 3G and second prize is a $50 BGSU Bookstore gift card. Winners will be announced at the reception on Oct. 20.
