The Boothe prizes recognize and reward outstanding examples of expository and argumentative writing of first-year students in the Program in Writing and Rhetoric and the Introduction to the Humanities Program. The Prizes have been made possible by the generosity of the late D. Power Boothe, Jr., and his wife Catie. Mr. Boothe was a graduate of Stanford's class of '31. These Prizes (one first-place and one honorable mention) are awarded at a special ceremony in the spring in honor of the preceding spring, autumn, and winter quarter winners.

Each first place winner will receive a certificate, a copy of The Riverside Shakespeare, and $350.00; each honorable mention winner will receive a certificate and a copy of The Riverside Shakespeare. The winning essays are published annually in Boothe Prize Essays: Excellence in Writing at Stanford.
