Crowder College Announces Crowder Quill Magazine Awards

(Neosho, MO) – The winners of the annual contest for the Crowder Quill literary and art magazine of Crowder College have been announced and published in the 2023 edition.

Nearly 1,000 entries were received with 104 awarded and published. The Crowder Quill will be mailed to winning entrants, and the magazine is available at Crowder College campuses and in the community.

A digital copy of the Crowder Quill is available online, as well as information about how to enter next year’s contest, which is already open. Updates are provided on Facebook and Instagram as well.

Moving forward, there will not be a ceremony. As the Crowder journalism and public relations program has pivoted to digital media marketing, students focused on providing digital and social media content rather than hosting a special event.

Begun in 1980, the Quill is published each spring; the contest deadline is February 1 each year, and divisions are high school, Crowder, and the community within 100 miles of any Crowder campus. The categories are fiction, nonfiction, poetry, 2D art, 3D art, digital art, color photography, and black-and-white photography. The magazine and contest are both free.

The magazine was produced in the Digital Marketing Applied Graphics course by the following students: Aubree Chisam, Crane; Nicholas Dean, Joplin; Kaleb Fobair, Joplin; Claudia Johnston, Neosho; Cindy Marmon, Monett; Eric McDonald, Joplin; Alyx Goebel, Carl Junction; Gisela Salas, Monett; Breanna Walker, Skidmore; and adviser Latonia Bailey, Neosho.

All published entrants receive a certificate for gold, silver, bronze, or honorable mention. See the full list of winners here.
