In July 2011, the family of Harry and Marjorie MacLauchlan of Stanhope, PEI made a further leadership gift to UPEI to create a substantial awards program to encourage and recognize student writing achievement. The gift honours H. Wade MacLauchlan’s twelve years of service as UPEI president and vice-chancellor, and to recognize the importance of effective writing as a foundational skill for academic success and lifelong learning. 

The MacLauchlan Prizes for Effective Writing are valued at $500 each, with up to 57 prizes available annually for returning undergraduate students who produced outstanding written work in the previous academic year (September 1 – August 31), and up to 3 prizes available for faculty or staff members, who have shown exceptional leadership in the development of writing among students at UPEI. 

Please share this program with students or recommend a colleague via the following links.  Deadline for submissions is Friday, October 6:

MacLauchlan Prizes for Effective Writing (Coursework) – up to 35 prizes
MacLauchlan Prizes for Effective Writing (Community) – up to 11 prizes
MacLauchlan Prizes for Effective Writing (Webster Centre) – up to 11 prizes
