In May, The Argus hosted the 2019 Essay Contest for HUFSans. Undergraduate students wrote 800-word essays on one of the four topics: Party politics, South Korea’s Anti-abortion Law, Burning Sun Gate and US-China Trade War. A great many students submitted their writings, showing their passion for English.
Two foreign HUFS professors helped score the entries in accordance with seven criteria which included the ability to communicate a consistent idea and develop it in a logical and an organized manner. The essays were also graded on whether they abide by the style requirement, or the document format.
The Argus announced three awardees on May 24 via social media channels: Facebook and Instagram (@hufsargus). The first, second and third place essays are published in the following pages.
