How can I find out about the Harvard Prize Book program?

The Harvard Prize Book program, which may also be known as the Harvard Book Award, is an annual award given out to high-performing high school students in the U.S. Several other colleges in the northeast have a similar book award program. There is more information available on the Harvard Alumni Association Clubs & Shared Interest Groups website, as it is a program that they run. There should be specific contact information at the bottom of that page, but you may also contact the Harvard Alumni Association Clubs and SIGs generally via phone at (617) 495-3070, toll free in the U.S. and Canada at (800) 654-6494, and by email at
