Honoring Student Success

Each year we host a Student Awards Ceremony to honor the best work our undergraduate majors and graduate students have produced in the Northeastern Illinois University English Department.

We dispense cash awards for the best work in a range of categories, including poetry, fiction, expository writing, research writing, critical or theoretical essays and other genres, as well as honoring overall outstanding students and achievements, including those of our alumni.

The event is typically supported by donations from our generous alumni, who have a great appreciation for their English Department education at Northeastern and who want to support those following behind them.
