Feinberg Family Prize
It is with great pleasure that we announce this year's recipients of the Feinberg Family Writing Prize for Excellence in First Year Writing. These students' essays were selected from a group of seventy impressive submissions and passed a rigorous, multi-round judging process. Our selection committee, composed of twenty-two writing instructors, carefully read and evaluated each essay; given the caliber of the submission pool, the decision process was incredibly difficult. Nevertheless, these essays stood out as superior examples of academic writing by first-year students.
Audrey Coble: “Dying to Live” nominated by Joe Horton, English 124
Willie Filkowski: “Instagarbage” nominated by Ruth McAdams, English 125
Sam Naples: “Behind Closed Doors: Why Many Restaurants are Reluctant to Share Basic Information About Their Food to Us – And What We Can Do to Stop It” nominated by Andrew Bozio, English 125
Congratulations to these students and their instructors for their accomplishments! And many thanks to the individuals who volunteered their time and energy to serve on the writing prize committee!
