Outstanding Writing Awards
Thank you for your interest in the Outstanding Writing Awards!
The Outstanding Writing Awards recognizes excellence in students’ writing in the following categories: the Collin Anderson Memorial Awards in creative writing (which includes digital/multimodal, poetry, fiction, nonfiction) and the Writing Across the Curriculum Awards (which includes the Kathy Lattimore First-Year Writing Award, and awards for the Arts and Sciences, Professional, Education, and Graduate courses).
Students: You may submit to as many writing awards categories as you would like, but please submit the same piece of writing to only one category.
Faculty: We encourage you to submit on a student's behalf, but please try to limit yourself to 3-4 exemplary entries for any one course/award category.
Questions may be directed to Kati Ahern at email@example.com
