The Dan Crowley Memorial Student Essay Prize, offered by the Storytelling Section of the American Folklore Society, is a $200 prize for a graduate or undergraduate student essay dealing with some aspect of storytelling performance in formal or informal settings.

To be eligible for the prize, applicants must be enrolled in a college or university degree program at the time the essay is submitted.

Submissions, which should not exceed 9,000 words in length, should be e-mailed to as a Word or .pdf attachment no later than June 15, 2013. The cover message should include the title of the paper, as well as the author's name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, academic affiliation and year in program, and the name of the faculty member to whom the essay was submitted. Only the title—no identification of the author—should appear in the essay itself.

The prize winner will be notified by the end of August. The award will be formally presented at the business meeting of the Storytelling Section at the Annual Meeting of the American Folklore Society in Providence, RI, October 16–20, 2013. For further information, please contact one of the section co-conveners, Milbre Burch ( or Joseph Sobol (
