Um Jung Ah's essay, "The World Needs More Pragmatic Frameworks", won the first prize. Jung Ah suggests some very realistic and specific ideas to solve global environmental problems by listing what individuals, non-governmental organizations, and international organizations have to and can do. Her understanding of the problem and scope of knowledge on this issue are quite thorough.
Kim Hasol's ideas to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Sookmyung are also very specific and useful. Hasol even comes up with names for each idea. One of them, what she calls "W.U.S.M.: Wishes Upon Sookmyung", is to select "100 ideas that can help others". I'd love to see this idea enacted!
Lee Boseul's essay about "independent university life" can be included in a manual for freshmen, if there is anything like that. Boseul suggests five helpful ideas for students and they are making friends, doing something different, working part time, studying, and travelling. Whatever the order may be, they all sound good.
Kim Jion chose the topic also about environmental issue. Wisely considering the two sides of industrialization and environmental pollution, Jion argues the necessity of environmental regulations, sustainable development, and individual awareness and activism to protect environment.
