Invitation to Participate in the 16th Annual Paul LeClerc Competition for Best Research Papers for 2009

May 17th, 2008 by Luis Gonzalez

The goal of this competition is to stimulate the creative use of library resources, including those of the Hunter Libraries Archives & Special Collections and the research facilities of the Center for Puerto Rican Studies. Winning papers should be thoroughly researched, well written, and properly documented.

Prizes will be awarded for papers judged to be the best of 2008. Papers written in the winter, spring, summer, and fall semesters of 2008 qualify.

Barnes & Noble Gift Certificates of $100.00 and $50.00 each will be given in separate categories for (1) 100 level, (2) 200 level and above undergraduate, and (3) graduate research papers. All departments and special programs in the college may participate. No more than three papers may be submitted for one course. Theses are excluded.

The deadline for submission is Monday, January 12, 2009. Only papers submitted by course instructors will be eligible for awards. Papers should be sent to Prof. Tony Doyle at the Hunter College Libraries with a note giving the course name, number and semester (Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall 2008). Submissions should also include students’ phone numbers and email addresses. There is no special format, and submitting the papers is sufficient statement of recommendation. A faculty panel will select the winners. Awards will be presented at the college-wide Hunter Library Day reception in the spring of 2009.

Faculty sponsors of winning candidates will also be formally recognized for their support in this common effort to promote the research and writing skills of Hunter students.
