UST students receive awards from Delta Epsilon Sigma national office
Delta Epsilon Sigma, a national scholastic honor society for students attending Catholic colleges and universities, annually sponsors a national writing contest. Faculty judges at St. Thomas award local prizes for submissions by St. Thomas students and then send the winning manuscripts to the DES office to compete in a nationwide competition.
This year, three UST students earned first or second place in the national competition. Lea M. Stans received first place for her story, "Barbed Wire." Krystyna Brandt earned second place for her poem, "Belmont El." Sahr Brima took second place in the essay competition for his work, "Extinguishing the Sun."
Stans' story and Brandt's poem will be published in the DES Journal.
