W.W. Newell Prize

The Children’s Folklore Section annually offers the W. W. Newell Prize, which includes a $200 award, for the best student essay on a topic in children’s folklore.

Students must submit their own papers, and published papers are not eligible. We invite instructors to encourage students with eligible papers to enter the competition. Papers must be typed and double-spaced; on the first page, include the author’s name, academic address, home address, e-mail address, and telephone numbers. The deadline for each year’s competition is September 30.

Please electronically submit papers to Jared Rife, JaredRife@centralpenn.edu, and David J. Puglia, davidjpuglia@gmail.com. Thank you!
