2012 Michigan Community College Press Association Judging Form
PIace of award:Honorable Mention
Category: Column/Humor
HeadIine/titIe of entry: People for the Unethical Treatment of People
Contestant's name: Ramon Razo
CoIIege name: Schoolcraft Community College, Division

Judge's comments: Mr. Razo is a writer of wit, flash, insight and talent. However,
believe, perhaps because of the large space he filled, his piece also had severe fits of
self-indulgence and verbosity. would very much like to read something by him that had
500 words or less. With that added dimension of discipline, think he would truly shine.
As is, the piece is well-written and well-constructed. The reader moves freely through it,
aided by good transitions and a fine vocabulary. He also had a terrific ending the best
among his competitors.
