Submit! Writing Excellence Awards

We've had many papers for PG courses win this award in past, so I encourage you to submit your paper. Details below:

Writing Excellence Awards

To encourage and reward good writing in all disciplines, the Writing Excellence prizes will be awarded again this year.

A total of nine prizes ($250.00 each) will be awarded:

* Two prizes in each category: Humanities, Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences and Mathematics
* One prize each for Freshman Seminars, Connections, and Graduate Programs

Rules for the Contest

Papers written as part of the requirement for courses taken at the University of Puget Sound during the most recent Spring, Summer, or Fall are eligible. Papers of any length may be submitted; short papers are as likely to win as long ones.

Students may submit no more than one paper in each category, and each paper must be accompanied by a description of the assignment and an entry form. (Entry forms are also available in the Center for Writing, Learning, and Teaching, Howarth 105/109.) Students should submit the original paper in person with the professor’s comments, or a photocopy of it, to the Center for Writing, Learning, and Teaching by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, February 26, 2008.

If you have any questions about the process or the prizes, please call Julie Neff-Lippman (253.879.2696) or send an e-mail.
