We’ve got a great new research paper contest starting now. If you would like to participate, you can get details and register free here..

Research Paper Contest

Your Research Paper Should Directly or Indirectly Answer the Question:

Support the Biblical Account of the Creation of Humans?

The Contest Prizes Are:

1st Place Prize: Dell Vostra 1720 Laptop Computer (17 inch screen)
2nd Place Prize: Dell Inspiron 15 Laptop Computer (15 inch screen)
3rd Place Prize: Dell Mini 9 Laptop Computer (9 inch screen)
4th – 10th Place Prizes: $25 Amazon Gift Certificates

The purpose of this contest is to build knowledge and encourage the development of skills: in scientific research and writing, using the APA style for a research paper, and in using analytical and critical thinking in the process of creating a quality research paper. Researching and using the APA style is also part of the learning process involved in preparing this research paper.

To research the APA style for a research paper, talk to your librarian, do research online, buy a book on the subject, etc. The Purdue Online Writing Lab is also a good resource.

Topic of Your Research Paper

The topic of your research paper should include some specific aspect(s) of anatomy and/or physiology of the human body. Be unique, creative, original – think outside the box – dig deep! Hint: lots of people write about the eye. It certainly is an incredible part of the anatomy and physiology of the human body. But, unless you focus on some small aspect of the eye and explain in detail how it supports creation, or have some unique take on the eye, you’ll be writing something  similar to many other people. Be unique, creative, original!
