The winning student’s name will appear in the commencement program.

In spring 2019, the deadline for submissions is Friday, April 5.

Submissions need not have been written for a “W” class or for any class. There are no restrictions as to length, type of writing, or subject matter (although all submissions must be in English).

Students may submit papers written as class assignments, or they may write papers especially for this contest. Poems, short stories, critical essays, research papers, articles of opinion, or expository essays are all acceptable.
