This year, MIT Tech Talk plans to publish accounts of awards to students and other members of the community in the June 3 edition, the paper that will be available to families at Commencement.
Because of the volume of awards given every year, we would appreciate receiving them via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org in the following specific order: award, recipient's first name, middle initial, last name, class year (for example, "senior," not '98), academic department by name, home town and state. A phrase stating the reason for the award also would be helpful.
Files may be sent as attached Microsoft Word documents in e-mail. For those who cannot communicate electronically, we will accept the information in the same order on a disk.
Please send your accounts along as soon as possible. Assembling this information and arranging it for publication is very time-consuming, so getting complete information early is essential in presenting a comprehensive report.
The deadline for inclusion in the June 3 issue will be Friday, May 22. If your awards have been decided but not yet presented, please so note, so that we know to treat the information as confidential.
