At the 31st annual Thomas R.

Another DePauw University senior, Austin Candor, was a finalist in the contest.
"The foundation’s board picked Veterans Day as this year’s writing challenge. Students had to write about a topic connected to the federal holiday, which honors those who served in the military," notes the newspaper. "The competition is named in honor of Tom Keating, a popular former Indianapolis Star columnist and Lilly Endowment executive who died in 1985 at the age of 45. Since its inception in 1986, the Keating program has awarded more than $140,000 to Indiana college and university students."
