2018 Dr. K. York & M. Noelle Chynn CUNY Ethics and Morality Essay Contest
Queensborough students Johnny Pena-Gomez and Somwattie Jagernaugh with Interim President Timothy G. Lynch and Vice-president for Institutional Advancement Rosemary Zins at the Asian American and Asian Research Institute, The City University of New York, reception event.
The CUNY Ethics and Morality Essay Contest is funded by an endowment gift of $100,000 to the City University of New York by Dr. K. York Chynn and his wife Noelle Chynn. This annual award is intended to promote and stimulate thinking by college students at CUNY about the topic of ethics, morality, and virtuous behavior in their lives. More than ever, these issues arise not only in the personal relationships of individuals and family and friends, but also in the context of corporate, government, and social responsibility, whether it is about treating others fairly and honestly, or food safety.
The Asian American / Asian Research Institute will award the top three essays, selected by the Selection Committee, the following prizes at its 17th Annual Gala in Fall 2018:
- Best Essay ($1,000)
- First Runner-up ($300)
- Second Runner-up ($200)
