At the fall 2011 Academic Convocation, Union College proudly awarded the recipients of the first annual Union College Board of Trustees Writing Awards. Each winner received $1,000 cash.
The awards started as an idea in the Division of Humanities. Faculty and staff were looking for ways to encourage students to make “skillful and artful writing a personal aspiration.” As the idea spread, the Board of Trustees got wind of it, and helped make the idea reality.
