College Writing Contest Offers $700 in Prizes

11/04/2013 

Forget delivering pizzas over winter break. SUNY Cortland’s annual College Writing Contest offers students the chance to win $100 for a stellar piece of writing from their coursework.

The call for written works is open to students in all majors and at any level of study. All course-related copy must have been written for a class completed in 2013.

The deadline to submit is Friday, Dec. 20.

The College Writing Committee this year will present awards for outstanding student writing in seven categories. First-place winners in each category will receive a $100 cash prize in addition to having their work published and the opportunity to present at Transformations: A Student Research and Creativity Conference in the spring.

Students can enter multiple submissions in multiple categories.

This year’s writing categories include:

Academic Writing (papers based on sources or other data, both original research projects and short class assignments)

Academic Writing from Composition Courses

Fiction (short stories or scripts)

Poetry

Creative Nonfiction (memoirs, personal essays or travel writing)

Media (websites, blogs or videos)

Non-course Writing, which is any work that falls into the other six genres that did not originate in a SUNY Cortland course.

Participants are asked to submit only electronic entires and follow these guidelines:

• Type the entry in a Microsoft Word document.

• Type your Cortland ID number on the paper, but do not include your name on the paper.

• Attach the entry to an email message. That message should include your name and Cortland ID number, the title of the submission, the writing category, the SUNY Cortland course for which it was written and the name of the professor who taught the course.

• Send the email and the attachment to Priscilla Harvey, keyboard specialist I for the English Department, at priscilla.harvey@cortland.edu.

Students are allowed to enter multiple submissions in one or more genres. However, each submission should be sent in a separate email.

For more information, contact Distinguished Teaching Professor Mary Lynch Kennedy at 607-753-2086.
