FYE Writing Awards

The Writing Center is pleased to announce the second annual First-Year Experience Writing Awards.

We are now calling for freshmen to submit their exemplary FYE papers for consideration. Four winners will receive $200 each and have their papers published on the Trinity Commons. In addition, up to four honorable mentions will receive $50 eachWinning submissions will be available to all Trinity faculty and staff for use as model papers in future classes.

Because we are aware of the variety of writing assignments in the FYE courses, we accept all types of papers, from two-page analyses to longer, heavily-researched essays. It is our hope that the winning papers will represent the exciting diversity of writing that takes place in this important course.

  1. Papers must have been written for one of the First-Year Experience Courses during the Fall 2016 semester.
  2. In addition to providing your name and contact information, please note the name of the course, the instructor, and a brief explanation of the assignment.
  3. Papers may be any length, but only one entry per student will be considered.
  4. Papers must be submitted as Word documents to jrowe [at]
