This year, MIT Tech Talk plans to publish accounts of awards to students and other members of the community in the June 6 edition, the paper that will be available to families at Commencement.
Because of the volume of awards given every year, we require articles to be sent via e-mail no later than Friday, May 25. They should be given in the following specific order: award, recipient's first name, last name, class, academic department by name, home town and state (for example, "The Smith Award for outstanding thesis in the field of transportation was presented to Jane C. Doe, a sophomore in civil and environmental engineering from Anytown, CT.")
Information should be sent within an e-mail or as an attached Microsoft Word text file; please do not send spreadsheets, tables or other formats.
Please send your accounts along as soon as possible. Assembling this information and arranging it for publication is very time-consuming, so getting complete information early is essential in presenting a comprehensive report.
If your awards have been decided but not yet presented, please indicate, so we know to treat the information as confidential.Contact Alice Waugh at x8-5401 with any questions.
