2022 Writing Contest Centered on "Men at Work"


The members of the Irish Cultural Society and the members of the H.W. Wilson Foundation are pleased to announce the launch of the 2022 Martin J. Kelly Writing Contest.

This year, our contest will challenge students to write a creative description of each of the eleven iron workers on a beam as shown in the iconic photograph, “Men at Lunch.” (See photo at left)

Contest entrants will choose one of the eleven men in the photograph to be the one who describes each of the other men. The narrator must be an Irish immigrant and at least one of the other men must be an Irish immigrant. The narrator will tell the reader about himself and about the other men. The narrator’s personality will come through in his description of the other men.

We express our appreciation to our sponsor, The H.W. Wilson Foundation.
