The Student Ethics Essay Award (SEEA) competition was sunsetted in June 2023 and is no longer active—we are broadening our ethics education initiatives to reach a wider audience. More information will be provided in 2024. Thank you for your participation in and support of the SEEA program for so many years! See the SEEA Award Recipients webpage to view previous winners and read their winning essays.
The SEEA program was conducted as part of ASHA's efforts to enhance ethics education activities.
