WIU Students Win First & Third Place in STD Regional Blog Contest

Last year, Haley Helgesen wrote a 3rd place winning blog entry for Sigma Tau Delta’s Midwestern regional blog contest. After much success with that contest, the Midwestern Region put it on again with a different theme of "recreation" that reflects the 2017 Sigma Tau Delta International Convention to be held in Louisville in March. And, once again, two of Western Illinois University’s undergraduate English students won.

A huge congratulations to Max Keil for winning 1st place and Rebecca Graham for winning 3rd place! And special thanks to Tim Helwig, who is the Sigma Tau Delta Midwestern Regent, and Haley Helgesen, who is the Midwestern Region Student Representative.
