STOWE PRIZE

The Student Stowe Prize, established by the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center in 2012, recognizes outstanding writing by United States high school and college students that is making a tangible impact on a social justice issue critical to contemporary society. Issues may include, but are not limited to, race, class and gender. Entries must have been published or publicly presented prior to submission.

The Student Stowe Prizes will next be awarded in June 2018 at the Stowe Center’s fundraising event, the Big Tent Jubilee. The Student winners will also be featured at the Real Stories of Social Change panel, a free public program immediately preceding the Big Tent Jubilee.

Award recognition includes a $2,500 prize for the college winner and a $1,000 prize for the high school winner. Winning entries are printed in the Big Tent Jubilee program book and posted on the Stowe Center’s website.
