Award names are capitalized no matter where they fall in a sentence and should be written out fully on first reference. On second reference, the Frank Bailey (1885) Prize could simply be called the Bailey Prize. (LINK TO PRIZES)

“Award” and “prize” are capitalized when the full name is used, but not in shortened versions:

  • The Minerva Prize goes to a female student whose work best combines the scholarly study of women or gender with activities that enhance the life of women on campus.
    • The Jenkins award recognizes bibliographical research.
