About  :  Archives  :  Guidelines

At the conclusion of each semester, students in sections of Western Heritages I and II (LAR) may submit work to be considered for the LAR Faculty Award for Liberal Thought and Expression. Only works composed for LAR are eligible for submission. Entries will be read by a group of LAR faculty. The writers of three essays will be awarded cash stipends, and their essays, along with several others, will be published in Furrows.

Writers should submit essays electronically by emailing their essays to Dr. Greg Dyer at any time prior to the end of the semester.

  • Please be sure to include the words “LAR Faculty Award” in the subject line of the email.
  • Please be sure to include the following documents as email attachments in either Microsoft Word (.doc) or Rich-Text format (.rtf).
    • Each essay you wish to submit for consideration.
    • An entry form for each essay you wish to submit. Blank copies of the entry form may be obtained at the following URL: (http://www.usiouxfalls.edu/academic/english/LAR/furrows/entries.doc).

Please feel free to contact Dr. Greg Dyer or your LAR instructor if you have any questions.
