If you have any papers that you feel especially proud of and that you have submitted for a course at Puget Sound during 2009, you should make sure to submit them for the Writing Excellence Contest. Here are the details:
Papers written as part of the requirement for courses taken at the University of Puget Sound during spring, summer, or fall of 2009 are eligible. Papers of any length may be submitted; short papers are as likely to win as long ones. A total of nine prizes ($250.00 each) will be awarded: two prizes in each category–Humanities, Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences and Mathematics–and one prize each for Freshman Seminars, Connections, and Graduate Programs.
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 available in the Center for Writing, Learning, and Teaching, HO 105/109 and at www.ups.edu/writingexcellenceawards.xml.) Students should submit the original paper with the professor’s comments, or a photocopy of it, to the Center for Writing, Learning, and Teaching by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 28, 2010. We are unable to accept papers submitted after this deadline.
If you have any questions about the process or the prizes, please call Julie Neff-Lippman at x2696 or e-mail neff -at- ups.edu.
