To the underclassman who submits the highest quality entry in a category, the Anna Jackson Quinn Award for Creative Writing is given. It was established in 2008 by the Scribblers Club in recognition of Anna Quinn, the Faculty Advisor for the Mountain Breeze from 1992-2006. The award is generously funded by the Quinn family.
