Congratulations to Dominique Hazzard on winning the 2019 Butler Prize for her first year paper titled, “”Consumer Action”: The District of Columbia’s 1968 Unrest in Context.”
The Butler Prize is awarded annually to the best paper written by a first-year student. Each year the chair of the department appoints a faculty committee to select the winner. Papers are normally nominated by faculty sponsors. The prize was established in 1957 by Dr. Alexander Butler, a graduate of the department.
