Two CBE sophomores win awards for excellent writing

Written By: Sam Million-Weaver

Chemical and biological engineering students Aagney and Joshua Olson took home second and third place, respectively, in the 2019 competition for the Steuber Prize for Excellence in Writing.

Established in 1992, the contest encourages undergraduates to stretch their communication skills beyond the dry technical style found in most classroom reports—wordsmiths may submit all styles of writing, ranging from expressive to informative or persuasive narratives. Aagney, who goes by a single name, wrote a piece titled “Grandmother,” and Olson authored “The Watering Hole.”
