Sweetland and the English Department Writing Program offer prizes for student writers in LSA. Sweetland’s prizes include: the Sweetland Prize for Outstanding Writing Portfolio, the Matt Kelley Award for Excellence in First-Year Writing, and the Sweetland Prize for Excellence in Upper-Level Writing. These prizes are awarded annually in the winter term, and winning entries are published both digitally and in hard copy to showcase excellence in writing across the College. Instructors nominate student writing for each of the prizes. Learn more about nominating a student.
