Another example of a prize for information literacy

I like to highlight awards that universities give to students (and staff) for effective information literacy. I noticed this example from Morehead State University, USA, where they give a US $500 prize. "The award is given to students who exhibit exemplary information literacy skills (the ability to find, evaluate, and use information from a variety of sources with proper citation). Entries are judged on how well the student's research paper demonstrates appropriate and effective use of library resources, and on the accompanying essay about the research process."
