Judy Rogers Art, Media & Writing Contest

This contest is named after Dr. Judy Rogers, former Dean of Undergraduate Programs, tireless advocate for gender inclusiveness, and a founding member of the Interdisciplinary Women’s Studies Program at MSU, predecessor of our current Gender Studies Program. The Judy Rogers Contest gives awards for outstanding work in the areas of creative prose, poetry, visual art, and performance/video art.
