DETROIT, March 6, 2013 — The Department of English and Modern Languages at Marygrove College has just completed the judging for the third year of the Mary Helen Washington Writing Award Contest, offered in conjunction with its Contemporary American Authors Lecture Series (CAALS). Named after nationally-renowned scholar, editor, essayist, and teacher Dr. Mary Helen Washington, and supported through the generosity of series sponsors Lillian and Don Bauder, this annual contest asks students to write essays in response to the works of the CAALS guest artist. This year’s students were asked to write essays or poems in response to the works of this year's guest artist, National Book Award-winning poet Terrance Hayes.

The College is pleased to congratulate the 2013 winners, listed below with their winning entry titles, schools, and teachers:

Grand Prize: Sarah Mokh, “Lighthead’s Guide to Poetry,” an essay, Fordson High School, Kerry Howell

Second Prize: Lujine Nasralla, “Quid Sit Ars Poetica?,” an essay, Fordson High School, Kerry Howell

Second Prize: Zekeyra Phillips, “Emotions,” a poem, Cass Technical High School, Vicki Green

Second Prize: Skylar Wilkes, “Pieces of Perception,” a poem, Cass Technical High School, Vicki Green

The winners will receive their recognition at the Master Class with Mr. Hayes on the morning of April 19, 2013.

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the Bauder Contemporary American Authors Lecture, and features a reading and book signing by Mr. Hayes, which will take place at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 19, in Alumnae Hall on the Marygrove College campus. The event is free and open to the public.
