Four students have won the Neumann University annual writing contest, held in conjunction with Delta Epsilon Sigma, a national scholastic honor society for students, faculty, and alumni of colleges and universities with a Catholic tradition. Prizes are awarded in the categories of poetry, prose fiction, research writing, and personal reflection. Local winners have the opportunity to apply for the national competition.
Campus 2013 winners are Madison Pollino in poetry for “A Playground of Death”; Suzan Zikul in prose fiction for “Peace to All Whom Enter”; Amanda Lupacchino in reflective writing for “Epilepsy: From Disability to Capability”; and Lisa O’Malley in research writing for “Inner Vision.” Professor William Hamilton coordinates the contest for Delta Pi, the campus chapter of Delta Epsilon Sigma.
National winners receive awards of $500 each and the winning submissions are published in the Delta Epsilon Sigma Journal.
Delta Epsilon Sigma was founded in 1939 to recognize academic accomplishments, to foster scholarly activities, and to encourage a sense of intellectual community among its members. National recognition is accorded through the college or university chapter. More than one hundred colleges and universities have received charters to establish chapters.
