- Introduction: JASNA (Jane Austen Society of North America) conducts an annual student Essay Contest to foster the study and appreciation of Jane Austen’s works in new generations of readers.
- Contest Topic: The 2021 Essay Contest topic is tied to the theme of our upcoming Annual General Meeting: “Jane Austen in the Arts.” It encompasses a wide variety of the arts, including fine arts, performance arts, decorative arts, and crafts. In your essay, discuss how Austen uses the arts, whether to reveal character, address social standing, advance the plot, or otherwise make a point. High school students may discuss her use of the arts in just one of her novels, though they are welcome to refer to more.
