The Edward H. and Marie C. Kingsbury Undergraduate Writing Award is given annually to recognize outstanding writing at the undergraduate level as reflected in an Honors in the Major thesis. Students may be nominated by their thesis director or any member of their Honors thesis committee.
In accord with the charge of the Kingsbury Endowment, the judges will give special weight to overall skill and precision in language use. The judges of the Kingsbury Award will, in general, favor writing whose significance and quality are evident not only to specialists but to a wide intellectual audience.
