Hawkins Award, the top PROSE prize, and the five PROSE Awards for Excellence at a special luncheon ceremony held during the PSP Annual Conference in Washington, DC.

The 2017 PROSE Awards luncheon will webcast live to audiences across the globe, and feature the debut of an original short film produced for the occasion as well as several multimedia presentations highlighting winners past and present.

The winning PROSE entries will be displayed after the luncheon. All entries will then be donated to Medgar Evers College Library in Brooklyn, New York, and The American University in Cairo Library in Cairo, Egypt.
