Brimhall Essay Contest
Each year the descendants of former Brigham Young University president George H. Brimhall honor the founders of the university by sponsoring the Brimhall Essay Contest. Held in conjunction with the university’s Homecoming celebrations, the contest is designed to introduce students to the individuals who have helped to shape Brigham Young University’s unique institutional character.
The L. Tom Perry Special Collections preserves and makes available a range of manuscript and archival resources documenting the contributions of the university’s founders. A bibliography of materials related to Raymond Beckham, the 2018 honoree, is available at this link. If you would like to learn more about the resources available for this year’s founder, contact the University Archivist.
