Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

One of the most enjoyable aspects of the Fund Drive is the energy generated from
our Grad School Challenge:


We love how schools work together for our cause. To every donor from every
school... thank you for your help!! For years, we have rewarded your efforts with
our undying gratitude and the glory of being recognized on our website. We still
want to thank all of the graduate schools in this fashion, but this year we want to
give out extra prizes to show our appreciation. First, we hope to acknowledge the
leading schools from every region with a personalized thank you certificate. Plus,
to recognize the extraordinary efforts of the Grad School Challenge winner, we
have an additional prize. Introducing....

The Golden Pig Award!!!

This year, we will be sending out an award plaque to the leading school of the
Grad School Challenge. Stanford, who has won this distinction many times, is once
again a strong leader $2,735. However, University of Washington was our winner
last year and is in second place with $2,015. Can they take the lead once again?
Will they pick up a coveted prize?

Perhaps they will! To make this even more exciting, we want to celebrate schools
who have shown their support by rallying the largest numbers of donors as well
as those schools who have donated the largest amount. So this year we also have
a special "School Spirit" plaque for this distinction. Once again, we have a
thrillingly close match. The University of Washington has just taken the lead with
32 donors. But the University of South Carolina has been incredible in how they
have organized their members to donate, and have 31 donors so far.

How will this end? Will the University of Washington take one (or both!) of these
awards, and remain the victor for another year? Will Stanford and the University
of South Carolina steal its thunder? Or is there a dark horse who will triumph
over all of our formidable contenders? Your donations will determine the


Again, thank you all for your help, and best of luck in the Grad School Challenge!
