How It Works

​1. Students complete the First Year Program Writing Showcase entry form (select project type: Library Research Prize) and submit essay and Research Statement​ for consideration. 

2. A panel of DePaul University Librarian judges evaluate and select the most outstanding entries to receive the Library Research Prize and to be honorees at the Showcase. 

3. Honorees participate in a DePaul University Center for Writing-based Learning Workshop and create a poster to accompany their selected writing project. 

4. Honorees share and display their work at the Showcase, in the company of peers, family, friends, and DePaul community members. 

5. Following a short program, including remarks made by an invited keynote speaker and DePaul community members, honorees receive their awards.
