Prizes Announced for Articles
Written by Staff Members
To ENCOURAGE THE DEVELOPMENT of a high standard of writing
among our people, the Policy Group has established three prizes to
be awarded for each year for articles written by members of the
TRB&S professional staff. Partners are not eligible.
First Prize $500
Second Prize 300
Third Prize 200
The prizes will be awarded for articles in either of two categories:
Articles written for The Quarterly, or articles appearing in outside
publications. Printed articles which were originally given as speeches
will also qualify. Where there is more than one author the award
will be divided equally.
The quality of the writing will be as important as the subject and
treatment of the articles, which can deal with accounting, auditing,
tax, management services, retailing and general business. It is obvious
that articles of different types must be considered when the awards
are made. A scholarly, thoroughly researched piece which makes a
real contribution to the literature on the subject would certainly
qualify. So would an article on a timely development with wide
applications for the firm and for our clients. A new, original approach
to a subject which stimulates the reader's own thinking is another
kind of writing that might be considered for a prize.
To judge the articles, Donald Cramer will work with a committee
composed of the chairmen of the firm's technical committees. In
future years the period for which the prizes will be awarded will run
from September 1 to August 31, corresponding with the firm's fiscal
year. For this first time, however, we will consider articles printed
from January 1, 1962 to August 31, 1963.
Articles appearing in The Quarterly will automatically be included
in the judging but it will be the responsibility of the author to submit
his article if it is published elsewhere than in The Quarterly. Please
send a copy of the publication in which the article appears to Donald
Cramer, Executive Office. Entries should be submitted as they are
published throughout the year.
