Finalists Named For Lucrative Literary Prize

CHESTERTOWN, Md. (AP) — Washington College on Maryland’s Eastern Shore has named five finalists for the most lucrative student literary prize in the nation.

This year’s Sophie Kerr Prize is valued at $62,900 and will be announced May 13 in Baltimore.

The award recognizes a graduating senior who shows literary ability and promise. Sophie Kerr was a Maryland native who bequeathed much of her estate to Washington College when she died in 1965. She was a fiction writer and magazine endeavor and stipulated that half of the income from her estate be awarded annually to a student with literary gifts.

This year’s finalists are Grace Arenas, Peter Fortenbaugh, Alex Stinton, Kimberly Uslin and Kay Wicker.
