OTSP Crip Camp Essay Contest Winners

September 18, 2023

In partnership with On the Same Page(link is external), the Division of Arts & Humanities sponsored a student essay and video contest. We asked students to stream the documentary (available for free here(link is external), including a version with audio description and open captions), and invited them to respond to one of the following prompts:

  1. Reflect on the film in a creative way to share its impact with people in your life. Why should they watch it?

  2. Profile one of the Berkeley changemakers around disability studies and disability rights. The person you profile can be either in the film or a faculty or alum of Berkeley who has made an impact in the community.

  3. Bring awareness to one of the disability rights outcomes that resulted from the work of the pioneers featured in the film.

The following three essays were chosen by Scott Saul, professor of English and committee member for this year's On the Same Page program.
