Please send any and all nominations to Mike Bauer by Monday March 10th, Chair of the Scholarship Committee.

This award is meant to recognize outstanding performance in/for the Argumentation and Forensics Division of CSCA.

The winner of the award is expected to attend a panel in their honor. This panel is currently scheduled for Saturday April 4th, 9:30 to 10:45 am, Jefferson F.

Please send a letter of application explaining why this person should be recognized (including the nominee's contact information), the nominee's relevant activities in the argumentation and forensic division of CSCA, and any additional information you feel would be helpful to the committee in making a decision.
