Earlier this year we asked students to create short videos on the theme “Why Philosophy?” In their videos the students explored such as questions as “Why is philosophy important to today’s society?,” “Why is philosophy important to study?,” and “Why is philosophy important to you?” The videos were judged on relevance, creativity, storytelling, and production. Prizes were made possible by generous gifts from the Department of Philosophy Advisory Board.
We are pleased to announce the following winners of the “Why Philosophy?” undergraduate video contest:
- First place ($500 prize): “Why Philosophy?” by Koi Nil
- Second place ($250 prize): “Why Philosophy” by Alessandra Theresa Parker
- Third place ($100 prize): “Send It!” by Evelyn Hyde and Frederick Lancia
The department would like to thank all the students who took the time to create and submit videos. Congratulations to our winners!
