Congratulations to Sumi Lee (COL '06) and Jillian Carey Saucier (COL '06), recipients of the 2006 Ora Mary Phelam Poetry Prize.
The Ora Mary Phelam Poetry Prize was established in 1988 by Georgetown Alumnus J. Patrick Lannan, Jr. in honor of his mother, and is sponsored through the Academy of American Poets College Prize Program. It is awarded each spring for the most outstanding poem, or group of poems, submitted by an undergraduate or graduate student. Entries are judged by a panel selected from the English Department faculty. The name of the contest winner is listed in the July issue of the Academy of American Poets monthly newsletter, Poetry Pilot, and winning poems might be selected for inclusion in the AAP's anthology of college prize poems.
