Student Reflections Essay Competition

We are accepting one-page reflection essays on topics related to life and politics on the African continent. Start by listening to an episode of the podcast, and use what you learn as a jumping off point to share how these ideas impact you, how the topics are connected to knowledge and ideas in the global political context, or whatever reflection you feel compelled to write about.

Email your essay to us with the subject line “Reflection Essay Submission” by January 29, 2021. Students can submit their essays independently or as part of a class assignment.

The first 100 participants will get Ufahamu Africa swag! And three winners will have the opportunity to read a portion of their essay for a future episode!
