As many of our alumni know, the Blugold Seminar in Critical Reading and Writing (WRIT) is not just the way most students on campus earn their University Writing Requirement. The Blugold Seminar is also where students develop skills in reading and writing, gain rhetorical knowledge, and then put all those skills to use as they create original, persuasive, multimodal projects. Students in Blugold Seminar courses do amazing rhetorical work as writers and researchers, and the program would like to be able to recognize them.
Would you like to be a founding contributor to the Blugold Seminar Outstanding Project award fund?
We will recognize four outstanding projects every year. One award for Outstanding Project will be given to a student from each Blugold Seminar course: WRIT 114, WRIT 116, WRIT 118, and WRIT 120. Students will either self-nominate or be nominated by their instructors. The English Department Writing Program Committee will serve as the award selection panel. Winners will be recognized at the English department award ceremony in the spring, and all honorable mentions will receive a certificate. Additionally, award winning projects will be shared on the Blugold Seminar website. We are excited to recognize the great writing Blugold Seminar students do every semester.
If you wish to contribute toward the monetary awards, please contact Alaina Guns in the English Department Office.
