The J. Anthony Blair Prize

OSSA wishes to promote the work of graduate students and young scholars in
the field of argumentation studies. Thus we strongly encourage submissions from this group. The J. Anthony Blair Prize ($500 CDN) is awarded to the student paper presented at the Conference judged to be especially worthy of recognition. The competition is open to all students whose proposals are accepted for the Conference.

For the purpose of the Conference, a graduate student is one who has not completed the graduate program by September 7, 2010.
