Call for Nominations: 2017 Culture of Writing Awards

Recognizing exceptional student writing communicates to our students and the university that good writing matters in every discipline. To nominate outstanding undergraduate writers, interested units (schools, departments) seek nominations from the faculty and select the best paper from the major. For each writing prize winner, WIC awards $50, matched by $50 from the unit, for a total of $100. If a unit nominates a student, that student receives an award. There is no competition between units. 

Once your department or unit has chosen a paper to nominate, fill out the nomination form and submit it via email to Claire Roth by 5:00 p.m. PST, June 2, 2017. Consult our complete policy and submission instructions for more details.
