Congratulations to Prof. David Lapakko (Communication Studies, Film, and New Media) who has once again been recognized by the Great American Think-Off, a philosophy competition sponsored by the New York Mills, MN Cultural Center. This year, Lapakko’s essay was chosen in the top 8 out of hundreds submitted from around the nation; he will receive an honorable mention award at the Think-Off debates being held this coming Saturday night in New York Mills. Lapakko is one of two honorees from Minnesota; the others hail from Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Illinois. In 2013, Prof. Lapakko was a bronze medal winner at this event and in 2015 he was the overall champion; he also received honorable mention awards in 2016 and 2017. This year’s question is, “Which plays a larger role in shaping one’s life: Success or Failure?”
