Interested students must send their CV and a paper accepted to the forthcoming convention (limit of 3,000 words, exclusive of the Works Cited page) to mmla@luc.edu with “Undergraduate Student Paper Prize” in the subject line of the submission email. Submissions will be reviewed by the MMLA Program Committee, and the winning paper will be announced during the keynote speech at the convention. The prize comes with a cash award of $100. Submissions are due by October 15th of each year.
