The deadline to submit entries is April 1, and the contest is open to Club members and non-members. Offering entries is free for Club members, and $50 for non-members. Entries may be submitted online or by the more traditional use of mail. For more information click here.

The award is named for a longtime Club member who was good at humor writing.
It is for work from 2017. To apply, please submit three examples of a humor feature or column that appeared in a general circulation newspaper or online journalism site. The winner will receive $750.

The winner will be honored at a banquet at the Club this summer.
