Essay Writing Contest – “What The Eyes Don’t See”

March 28 @ 12:00 pm

What the Eyes Don't See Book CoverPNW’s One Book, One University book, “What the Eyes Don’t See,” presents readers with a paradox: We live in the Great Lakes region surrounded by bountiful freshwater supplies-20% of the world’s surface freshwater. Yet, our region, has faced serious freshwater challenges, from the Flint Water Crisis to many lesser known local problems resulting from problems of pollution, contamination, infrastructure, affordability, and climate change.

Compose a brief essay summarizing the paradox noted above. Then, craft an argument for the best solution(s) to secure access to clean, freshwater for all people in the Great Lakes region. Essays should be between 500-750 words (not including any works cited) and must be submitted via our online submission portal.
