This year’s topic, "The Workforce of the Future – Employers’ Evolving Relationship with Workers", generated essays from undergraduate and graduate students from many countries. Prizes of $20,000 for first place, $10,000 for second place, and $5,000 for third place were awarded. Contest winners also received an expense-paid trip to New York City to attend the NAHR Annual Meeting and Installation of New Fellows Ceremony.
