From Dr. Kiril Petkov...

The UWRF History and Philosophy Department invites submissions for its already established annual “Outstanding Essay in History” Award. If you ever wrote and submitted an essay for a history or philosophy class you took at UWRF your work is eligible.

Winners will receive a free dinner reservation for the annual History and Philosophy Banquet. Each prize carries a Letter of Award that will be personally bestowed to the author at the banquet and publicized on campus and the department web site. First prize winners will also receive an additional prize.

So hurry up, dig up that essay your instructor marked as brilliant, or print that cherished paper of yours which you always thought was so good, but never truly appreciated! This is your chance to get recognized and add a distinction to your job application portfolio! 

We expect your submission and hope to see you at the banquet!
