South Dakota State University's Great Plains Emerging Tribal Writer Award is now accepting applications. The $500 award aims to encourage the development of American Indian Writers. This award allows aspiring tribal writers to share their stories, culture, and heritage with a larger audience for the first time. 

Last year's winner, Jessie Taken Alive-Rencountre, shared her winning submission at SDSU's annual Consider the Century Conference. Since presenting at the conference, Jessie has published her winning submission, Pet'a Shows Misun the Light, with Mascot Books, sold more than 100 copies of her story, and presented at various venues across the state.
