prize and another for the best undergraduate paper with a $400 prize.
Papers must have been originally written by a single author for a class
in an accredited planning program in a US college or university during
calendar years 2002 and 2003. A signed certification of this by the
department chair or AICP liaison must accompany each paper submission.
A paper may be submitted only once; papers may not be revised and
resubmitted a second time. Each accredited program may submit only two
graduate and two undergraduate papers. Papers by multiple authors will
not be accepted. Papers may be no more than 20 typed and double-spaced
pages long, including references (plus up to 5 pages of tables, maps and
other diagrams) with margins of at least 1 inch and a font of at least
12 point. Title page should include student name, address, degree
