We love it when good talent gets noticed. The Prairie Light Review has been recognized on more than one occasion for its' excellence on national & regional levels.

The American Scholastic Press Association's national magazine competition rates college literary magazines based on such variables as content, organization, design, presentation, and creativity.

College of DuPage's Prairie Light Review was in competition with community colleges across the nation with an enrollment of 2,501 or more and ranked with six colleges in first place.

We would like to thank all of the contributors to the magazine. Without your support, the Prairie Light Review would not be among the best literary arts magazines in the country.
