Zeitoun Student Contest

zeitounIn Zeitoun, Dave Eggers tells the story of one family's experience of Hurricane Katrina. Now it's your turn.

Tell a true story of an encounter with a natural disaster.

It can be your own experience or an account of someone else's experience. You can tell the story in writing (as a nonfiction prose memoir, like Eggers's book) or through music, video, visual art, (filmed) performance art, or some other medium of your choosing. The contest is open to all Kansas State University students.
