Here you will find the collection of the winning entries to the Kristi Schultz Broughton Liberal Arts Essay Contest.
The Kristi Schultz Broughton Liberal Arts Essay Contest is an annual competition which encourages Butler undergraduates from all colleges to write a short essay in response to a prompt about the value of the liberal arts education they are experiencing at Butler. The author of the winning essay receives a $1000 prize.
The essay contest is named in honor of Kristi Schultz Broughton. Although not a Butler grad, Kristi was an avid supporter of Butler. Kristi was an elementary school teacher and a Butler Mom whose life exemplified the values of liberal education and a commitment to teaching and learning. The contest is made possible through the generous gift of Kristi's sister Karen Schultz Alter '85 and brother Steven R. Schultz '88.
