The Parapsychology Foundation has announced the 2006 winner of the annual Robert R. Coly essay competition. This year's recipient is Hanna Jenkins, a PhD student at the University of Tansmania and president of the Australian Institute of Parapsychological Research. Her essay, titled The Challenge of Parapsychology: One Down, But More to Go, discusses how the field of philosophy can pave the way for a dialogue between mainstream science and parapsychology.
The Robert R. Coly essay competition, which carries a prize of $1000, was created to encourage college and university students who have sufficient interest in the field of parapsychology to understand its complexities and help conceptualize its future, even if they are not in a parapsychology degree program or are not taking parapsychology courses at the moment. The annual deadline for the competition is November 15th.
Congratulations to Ms. Jenkins!
