The Emerson Prize

The Emerson Prize is awarded annually to students published in The Concord Review during the previous academic year who have shown outstanding promise in history at the high school level. Since 1995, over 200 students have won an Emerson Prize, and we are pleased to announce the most recent international recipients of the award from Volume 31, who each received $1,000 for their work. The Concord Review is also pleased to award the first annual Fitzhugh Prize this year, named after the Founder & Editor of the journal, Will Fitzhugh. Congratulations to all the laureates and please consider purchasing a single of their work through our online bookstore!
