This year MIT Tech Talk plans to publish accounts of awards to students and other members of the communuty in the June 5 edition, the paper that will be available to families at Commencement.
Because of the volume of awards given every year, we would appreciate receiving award information via e-mail to or in the following specific order: award, recipient's first name, middle initial, last name, class year (e.g., sophomore, senior, not '98, '96), academic department by name, home town and state. Using binhex in TechMail to save formatting also will help.
For those who cannot communicate electronically, we will accept the information in the same order on a disk in Microsoft Word 5.0 for Macintosh.
Please send your accounts along as soon as possible. Assembling this infomation and arranging it for publication is very time-consuming, so getting complete information early is essential in presenting a comprehensive report.
The deadline for inclusion in the June 5 issue will be Wednesday, May 22. If your awards have been decided but not yet presented, please so note, so that we know to treat the information as confidential.
