Annual playwriting competition open to all juniors and seniors

Sep 20 through Jan 21

VCDF Room 108

Original play submissions are open to ALL juniors and seniors, campus wide, for a $1,000 award!

The Marilyn Swartz Seven ’69 Playwriting Award was established by friends and classmates of the late Ms. Seven to support an annual playwriting competition open to all Vassar juniors and seniors. To this day, Ms. Seven’s classmates are dedicated to her legacy.

The awards began in 1999, and offer an opportunity to Vassar College students from any discipline campus wide to present an original play. Past recipients of this award include English, math, science, and drama students who showed extraordinary writing skills.

The recipient receives $1,000 and a staged reading, reception, and certificate provided by the Drama Department.

Entry forms and guidelines can be found in the Vogelstein Center for Drama and Film outside of room 108.
