The Department of English is pleased to announce the Peter Burton Hanson undergraduate writing awards, given for the best submissions in the three categories of Scholarly Writing, Creative Writing, and “Other.”  The awards are named in the honor and memory 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.  The life that Peter practiced and the values that he espoused are remembered here through this prize and stand as testimony to one man’s humanity and victory over the terrorist violence that took so many lives.

Prize winners will present their work and receive their awards at this special reception. This event is free and open to the public.
