University of Evansville junior Sari Baum was the recent runner-up in the competitive 2016 Norton Writer's Prize, a national competition that is awarded annually for an outstanding essay written by an undergraduate
Baum’s essay “Bánat is Hungarian for Grief” skillfully weaves scenes about her Hungarian roots with the familial curse of dementia. Baum uses beautiful scenes to render heartbreak and show us her great-grandmother’s struggle, resulting in a narratively complex essay.
