The Department of English, SAGES, and the Center for the Study of Writing are pleased to announce the SAGES First Seminar Essay Awards, which recognize the best essays produced by our first-year students. Each selected essay will be published in a prize booklet; student authors will receive a cash prize.
Faculty and/or Writing Instructors in SAGES First Seminars or English Department Writing Courses may nominate up to two essays from their courses by completing this form and returning it to firstname.lastname@example.org by or before the date that fall semester grades are due (December 18, 2015).
Students will be contacted and asked to submit final, electronic copies of their essays by the end of the drop/add period of the following spring semester (January 22, 2016).
Essays will be judged by writing faculty and awards will be announced in time for the publication of the prize booklet, which will be distributed at the spring Celebration of Student Writing (April 2016).
