Students from Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan (in Tennessee) and Johnson University Florida were winners of the 2020 Student Paper Competitions.

Samuel Guy of ECS won the graduate division with his paper, “What Is Adam that You Are Mindful: A Comparison of Adam in Genesis 1 and 2.” Michael Wood of JUF won the undergraduate division with his paper, “The King’s Invitation: A Study of Matthew 22:1-14.” Guy and Wood received free one-year memberships in the Stone-Campbell Scholars Community and other assorted prizes.
