The James R. Bennett Award for Literature and Peace
After you are notified of acceptance, you may send your project
documentation or conference paper to klmadison_at_loyola.edu by March 15 for
consideration for the James R. (Dick) Bennett Award for Literature and Peace.
A prize of $250 dollars may be awarded annually for a paper or project that
contributes significantly, through action or understanding, to the prospect
of living in harmony with the Earth and humankind.
Papers must conform to CEA submission deadlines. Submissions may be
nominated by the presenter in advance of the conference or by any session
chair at the conference itself by providing a copy of a previously
submitted paper to the CEA Peace Panel organizer.
Each submission will be read by a panel of three judges: the panel
organizer, the current CEA president, and the CEA Critic editor or one
representative selected by each. The prize winning entry will be considered
for publication in the CEA Critic, and self-nomination presumes submission.
If no entry is deemed exceptionally noteworthy, the judges may refrain from
naming a recipient. Although papers must be delivered at the CEA annual
conference, the recipients need not be present at the All-Conference
Luncheon to receive the award.
