picture of prize winners

Each year, the Department of English recognizes three undergraduate writers in English department classes with the Peter Burton Hanson Awards: one given for the best scholarly essay written by an English major, combined major, or minor; one given for the best creative work; and one for the best work not belonging to the scholarly or creative writing categories. The awards are named in honor of Peter Burton Hanson, A&S ’91, an English major, who perished along with his wife, Sue Kim, and young daughter, Christine Lee, aboard United Airlines Flight 175, on 9/11/01.
