My soph year English teacher told me today that I will be the recipient of a "College Book Award" at some kind of district-wide English ceremony next week. He didn't tell me what college it was so as to not ruin the surprise, but he dropped some names, Bryn Mawr and Brown being the only ones that I remember. He said something about how these awards show that the colleges might possibly be interested in the recipient.
I know nothing about college book awards, except that I'm getting one, and the award is an actual book. Anyone have any more info? Are they prestigious? (Obv, depending on the schools...) Is this a big deal (relatively speaking, obv not compared to what everyone else, esp the science students, on cc is getting)?
