STUDENT SCHOLARLY SUBMISSIONS
Mario A.J. Bennekin believed that with education comes tolerance. To honor his legacy, we are creating a space for students to submit scholarly works, including papers, music, artwork, poems, and related contributions. All submissions must be tied to this year’s theme, “A Black History Movement: Knowing the Past Opens the Door to the Future,” and be amenable to online publishing. Please review the information and criteria below for submissions.
The dean’s office invites currently enrolled Perimeter College students to submit scholarly papers, poems/spoken word, artwork, original music, and other forms of expression related to this year’s symposium theme. Our goal is to provide a platform for students to explore Black History in a scholarly manner. Student(s) chosen by committee will have their submission(s) published to the symposium website and their name(s) engraved on a plaque that will be displayed on a memorial wall, honoring the late Mario AJ Bennekin on Dunwoody’s campus. The student will also receive a plaque of their own.
Acceptable submissions include:
- Essays and papers: Less than 1,500 words, and submissions can be nonfiction or fiction. Submit in .docx, .doc or .pdf.
- Poems and Spoken Word: Less than 20 lines. All types of poems are acceptable. Submit in .docx, .doc or .pdf. You also have the option of submitting a video. (*See video requirements below.)
