Here are the Winners of the 10th Bauervic Essay Competition

April 10, 2020

This year we celebrated the 10th installment of the annual Bauervic Essay Competition. The Bauervic Essay Competition is sponsored by the Charles M. Bauervic Foundation, which provides $5,000 in prize money for the winning Northwood student entries. Northwood University and the Charles M. Bauervic Foundation are pleased to announce the winners of the organization’s annual essay contest.

With the focus of honoring a lifelong commitment to encourage private enterprise for the public good through education, dedication and advocacy, the Bauervic Award seeks to honor Charles Bauervic’s work and philosophy by encouraging free-enterprise for the public good. Each year Northwood University students are asked to write an essay on a preselected topic concerning the subject. They are then judged and prizes are awarded to the first, second and third place winners.

As part of this year’s contest, writers were asked to write about their thoughts of government regulation and the impact they have on entrepreneurs and the State of Michigan.

This year, the essay competition was extremely competitive and the judges determined that there was a tie for first place. Winners include:

1st Place – Jon Vokal and Kristin Tokarev

2nd Place – Rebekah Moots

3rd Place – Jacob Walters
