ANGOLA, IN — Trine University’s Humanities and Communication (HAC) department recently announced the winners of its 2016 Walter Cunningham Writing Contest, college division. This is the seventh year for the contest, sponsored in conjunction with the Humanities Institute and the Writing Center.
First-, second- and third-place prizes and honorable mentions were awarded in academic, creative nonfiction, fiction and poetry categories. To ensure fairness in judging, authors’ names were removed from their entries, which were then ranked by a panel of judges from across Trine’s campus.
Among those recognized is Travis Haynes of West Unity, Ohio. Haynes is a junior majoring in mechanical engineering.
