Kenneth and Elissa May Plattner established the Denny C. Plattner Awards in 1995 to honor their late son, Denny, and his love for writing. Each year since, judges have selected the best pieces to appear in Appalachian Heritage. First-place winners each receive $200.00, and all winners receive book racks from Berea College Crafts. Previous winners are listed on our website: http://community.berea.edu/appalachianheritage/plattnerawards/default.html. [End Page 10]
