Faculty and staff members who have created learning activities related to the common book, The Ghost Map are encouraged to submit them for recognition. Activities may include, but are not limited to, paper assignments, events, discussions, and programs.
One outstanding activity will be selected based on:

- Engagement of students in program, project, or activity

Students are invited to share their experience of the issues raised in The Ghost Map. What did you learn from Steven Johnson about yourself or your community?
This experience can be shared through a non-fiction essay, creative writing, music, video, visual art, (filmed) performance art, or some other medium. You are also encouraged to submit a short (2 minute) personal video. Entries should indicate the basis for the experience, such as the book, Steven Johnson’s lecture, conversation with Steven Johnson, a classroom discussion, or another event or program or reading selection.
The contest is open to all K-State students. The winner will receive a $150 scholarship for the Spring 2015 semester.
