THE MERILH AWARD for the best original essay written for an English class.
THE RICHARD LYNCH AWARD FOR CREATIVE WRITING for the best original short story.
THE CATHOLIC POETRY SOCIETY AWARD for excellence in original short poetry.
THE REVEREND ANDREW C. SMITH, S.J. POETRY PRIZE: Original short poems are solicited for a prize of $100.00 from the Academy of American Poets.
