Student work in Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Studies has a real impact beyond the classroom. In WRD, we value students' abilities to engage in many kinds of research and their willingness to address complex issues. Students in WRD courses often use many kinds of media to create their texts: print, video, audio, in addition to other formats.
Each year, we award excellent student work in our classes at an awards ceremony in April. Individually and team-produced written, visual, audio, and multimedia work by WRD students at all levels is eligible for entry into the contest during the calendar year in which it was produced.
