Nominating Students for the Ward Prize

The Paul Ward '25 Prize in Writing
for First-Year Students
 
Each year the Writing Program solicits nominations for the Paul Ward '25 Prize in Writing for First-Year Students.
 
The $500 first prize and two $250 second prizes are presented annually to the first-year students whose writing best exemplifies, in the words of the bequest, "the use of basic English as the writer's most necessary tool: precise and exact usage of words, exact meanings, phrases expressed lucidly and gracefully."
 
Every student whose writing is submitted will be recognized at a presentation reception on the Friday afternoon of Family Weekend next October, and will be invited to train as a peer writing tutor and/or first-year seminar mentor for academics and writing.   Please help identify and encourage academic excellence by submitting a copy of your first-year students' best papers below.  Call (x3182) if you have any questions about eligible work. Deadline for nominations is  mid June. Click here to nominate a student.

The Paul W. Ward '25 Memorial Prize

 

Ward Prize Certificate

 

 

The Paul W. Ward '25 Memorial Prize competition recognizes annually those first-year students who are judged by the faculty to have produced outstanding essays in writing classes during that academic year.

The prize was established in 1978 by Paul W. Ward's widow, Dorothy Cate Ward '28, their daughter Marren Ward Meehan '62, and their son-in-law Tom Meehan '62. In her letter to the College Mrs. Ward wrote:

"This prize is offered in memory of Paul W. Ward, whose life-long career as a journalist and diplomatic reporter bought him both the Pulitzer Prize and the French Legion of Honor. During his long career he emphasized the use of basic English as a writer's most necessary tool. Precise and exact usage of words, exact meanings, phrases expressed lucidly and gracefully, seemed to him the most direct and understandable means of communicating with his readers. We, his family, hope these beliefs and standards will furnish the criteria on which this prize will be judged."

And so they have, every year, since 1978.
