$999.99 More Than a Penny for Your Thoughts

Just think how many loads of laundry you could do or how many cases of . . . soda you could buy with $1,000.

If you, like the gentlemen on the left, have pored over RBMSCL manuscripts, books, broadsides, maps, etc. (with or without a magnifying glass) and turned your brilliant discoveries into a brilliant paper, why not submit it for a chance to receive one of two Chester P. Middlesworth Awards?

The two awards, one for an undergraduate and one for a graduate student, each carry a cash prize of $1000.00. The awards will be given at a reception held during Parents’ and Family Weekend (October 22-24, 2010).

A few stipulations:

  • Your paper must have been prepared to meet requirements of a course in any academic department at Duke University or of an independent study project for credit at Duke University.
  • Your paper must be based largely or wholly on sources in the RBMSCL.

Oh, and the deadline for submissions is Saturday, May 15th!
