The University of Alabama is celebrating the impact of the To Kill a Mockingbird novel on our region and nation. Across the campus, groups of faculty and students are working to ensure this great opportunity to salute the work and show the progress that has been made across our nation during the novel’s lifetime.

The University of Alabama’s College of Communication and Information Sciences is pleased to announce the thirteenth annual To Kill a Mockingbird Essay Contest.
