The Albert I. Dickerson 1930 Freshman Essay Prize
Albert I. Dickerson, for many years Dean of Freshmen, took great interest in first-year composition. In his memory, a prize has been established which will be awarded annually to that student who writes the best expository essay in a First-Year Seminar, Writing 5, and Writing 2-3, as decided by the prize committee nominated by the Director of the Writing Program.
Each instructor should make a preliminary selection of the best essay written in his or her class each term. The instructor is permitted to make constructive criticism of the essay and the student is permitted to revise it before submitting it to the Director of the Writing Program for the competition. The instructor will obtain the agreement of the student before submitting a selected essay.
The competition entries will be judged by the prize committee after the completion of the Spring Term each year.
