The MU English Department Composition Program seeks candidates for the Mahan First-Year Essay Award. We invite first-year students enrolled in English 1000 for any 2019 or 2020 semester to submit writing projects completed in ENG 1000. We're seeking well-crafted writing that demonstrates an insightful response to the rhetorical expectations of the assignment and engages in interesting ways with the topic. All papers from ENG 1000 are eligible. A $175 first prize and a $100 second prize will be awarded. Winning writers will be invited to present their papers at the MU Celebration of Student Writing, a campus-wide event showcasing writing by students at MU, on Friday, May 1, 2020.
