KATE STONEMAN DAY
Katheryn D. Katz Student Award
Sponsored by Kate Stoneman Honorary Committee Members
Elizabeth Katz Toohey, Amy J. Kellogg, Class of 2002, and Prof. Laurie F. Shanks
Award is Presented to an Albany Law School Student
To celebrate Kate Stoneman Day, a $500 cash award will be presented to a current Albany Law School student or group project that best answers the questions:
“How has the legacy of Kate Stoneman—and her accomplishments in the legal profession—expanded opportunities for women in the practice of law? What would Kate Stoneman be fighting for today?”
The project can be an essay, mixed media, movie, poem, law article or other format as determined by the applicant.
If the submission is an existing law school paper from the last two academic years, these questions may be augmented into the paper in a separate section.
The award is a $500 total award, not a per person award for group projects.
Submission deadline: Friday, March 13, 2020
- Written submissions should be limited to no more than 2,500 words and any digital submissions should be limited to 5 minutes.
- Original work of the student or group.
- Prior submission are permitted.

- Must include the applicant’s name, cell phone number, and email address.
- Projects may be submitted via email to
firstname.lastname@example.org or by hard copy to the Office of Alumni Engagement, 3rd Floor, 2000 Building.
The award winner will be announced at the Kate Stoneman Day Celebration on March 19, 2020.
The winner does not need to be present to win, but attendance at the celebration is encouraged to meet the Kate Stoneman keynote speaker and other award recipients.
