From the Niagara Chapter By-Laws: [The Tuttle Prize] is awarded to recognize an outstanding student paper presented at the annual meeting. An ad hoc committee of three faculty readers, who do not have a student in consideration, will be organized at the annual business meeting. Students must submit an electronic form of their paper to the Tuttle Prize Committee for consideration within a week of its presentation. Students who have won the prize in the past are no longer eligible. The charge of the Committee will be to determine if there is a paper deserving the prize within two months following the meeting. The prize is a one-hundred dollar cash award (voluntarily collected from faculty members of the Chapter), recognition of the prize, and the possibility of the paper being “published” on the Chapter web-site.
