On Thursday, January 13, participants gathered on Zoom to celebrate the nominees for the Ward Prize in First-Year Writing for 2020-21. Rather than having one winner and two runners-up, as in past years, the committee selected 11 of the 30 nominees to receive the prize. The change allows for a broader range of styles and disciplines to be adequately represented and recognizes there isn’t one dominant voice in student writing that can be deemed best.
