28th Annual $2,500 UW Rural Health Prize - June 1 Deadline

September 17, 2019

The Hermes Monato, Jr. Prize of $2,500 is awarded annually for the “best rural health paper.” It is open to all students of the University of Wisconsin (any campus) as well as those who have graduated since June 1, 2019.

Students are encouraged to write on a rural health topic for a regular class and then submit a copy to the Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative as an entry by June 1, 2020. First established in 1993, winning papers have had a variety of formats—from first-person essays
to journal-ready articles. The competition was established to honor December 1990 UW graduate Hermes Monato Jr., a former Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative employee who brought great energy and creativity to promoting rural health.

Previous award winners as well as judging criteria and submission information are available.
