CDS Awards Committee- Daniel T. Richards Prize for 2011- Rebecca Raszewski (chair) and members Lynn Fortney and Leslie Czechowski.
The Awards Committee this year decided not to award the Daniel T. Richards Prize. We did not receive many nominations and some of the nominations were not eligible because the author had won the award within the past 5 years. I would like to thank Lynn Fortney and Leslie Czechowski for their service on this committee.
2012 MLA Travel Awards – Rebecca Raszewski (chair), members- Cecilia Botero, Mary Fran Prottsman, Ramune Kubilius
We do have three Travel Awards winners this year! Congratulations to Peg Allen, Christy Jarvis, and Ramune Kubilius* for meeting the award application requirements. They were each awarded $360.00, which is the equivalent of the MLA early bird conference registration fee. I would like to thank the Travel Award committee members Mary Fran Prottsman (our current Chair), Ramune Kubilius (our past Chair and Section Council Representative), and Cecilia Botero(Chair-Elect) for their service. Take care.
