The Henry York Steiner Memorial Prize for Short Fiction was established as part of the Steiner Prize, established in 1913 by Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Steiner of Grinnell who endowed the annual award of a prize "for some form of creative art." The winners of the prizes are decided through an annual competition, judged every spring semester. A cash award of $500 for first prize and two awards of $100 each for second prize will be given.
