The Kohrs-Campbell Prize in Rhetorical Criticism

The $10,000 Kohrs-Campbell Prize in Rhetorical Criticism is one of the largest awards ever established to sustain and advance the study of rhetoric in American higher education. This distinctive award offers this biennial book prize through the Michigan State University Press. Michigan State University Press is privileged to offer the endowed prize through its award-winning Rhetoric & Public Affairs Series.

The Kohrs-Campbell Prize was created through the generosity of Karlyn Kohrs Campbell and the late Paul Newell Campbell, for the encouragement of original research and scholarship of the highest quality in the field of rhetorical criticism. The Kohrs-Campbell Prize commemorates the distinguished scholarship and dynamic careers of two of the most important figures in the study of rhetoric and rhetorical criticism, Professor Paul Newell Campbell and Professor Karlyn Kohrs Campbell.

The Kohrs-Campbell Prize in Rhetorical Criticism is awarded biennially at the National Communication Association Annual Convention.
