The Col. Arthur D. Simons Center Faculty Writing Competition is an annual event inviting faculty members of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College to submit original papers examining aspects of interagency cooperation, coordination, or collaboration at the operational and tactical levels of conflict. Its purpose is to foster and encourage scholarship in interagency affairs that enhances education and discourse at the College; facilitating broader and more effective cooperation within the U.S. government at the level of application; and showcase the intellectual capital of the College’s faculty. Winning authors receive $250 for first place, $200 for second place, $150 for third place and $100 for honorable mention. Papers are also considered for publication by the Simons Center through the CGSC Foundation Press.
