The Undergraduate Writing Symposium provides an opportunity for departments and faculty to showcase exemplary work completed in their courses and gives us all an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our undergraduate students. We welcome nomination of argumentative essays, research reports, and other writing projects that can be read aloud. Any piece completed during the 2016 calendar year is welcome to compete for inclusion in the event.
To nominate a student for the Vanderbilt Undergraduate Writing Symposium, please fill out the form below. Each faculty member may complete as many as five nominations. The nomination deadline is Friday, January 13, 2017.
Once you submit your nominations, you will be copied on the email inviting your students to submit their writing and compete for inclusion in the Symposium. We invite you to follow up with the students that you have nominated to encourage their participation.
