The Thurber Prize for American Humor is the highest recognition of the art of humor writing in the United States. A panel of national judges selects the three finalists from seven or eight semi-finalists. The three finalists are required to attend the awards ceremony in Columbus, Ohio. The Prize returns to Columbus after several years in New York City. Guests will be entertained during a spectacular evening of humor culminating with the announcement of the 2018 winner of The Thurber Prize for American Humor.
