Walz History Prize
The Walz History Essay Contest was an annual competition sponsored by the History Department of Southern Arkansas University at Magnolia (SAU) from 1996 to 2001. It encouraged students from junior high through high school to enter history essays for prizes that range from cash to a full-scholarship to attend SAU. It has been discontinued in its original form.
It is now the Walz History Prize and provides cash awards to the first place winners of the annual History Day Contest held at SAU each Feburary/March who are also invited to SAU's annual history department banquet.
Winners also go on to the Arkansas History Day in Little Rock. Winn
