Fall 2013 First Year Students Writing Contest Winners
During the fall semester of 2013, English 101 students were asked to submit their Unit 1 Literacy Narratives on the theme of "Water" to the Writing Studies Office, Department of English. Cash prizes and certificates were presented to the winners. There was also a graduate component of the competition, allowing graduate students who were writing on this topic for English 503 to submit their papers for a separate prize. This competition was part of a university-wide initiative to engender interest in water-related issues including sustainability and the commodification of water.
