Jamal: Did you ever enter a writin’ contest?

Forrester: Yeah, once.

Jamal: Did you win?

Forrester: Well of course I won!

Jamal: You win like money or somethin’?

Forrester: No.

Jamal: Well, whadchu win?

Forrester: The Pulitzer.

This exchange is a famous dialogue from one of my favourite movie Finding Forrester.

In the movie, Jamal is a talented young writer who seeks mentorship from the reclusive Pulitzer Prize-winning author, William Forrester.

Some prizes are not about cash or assets, but about recognition and acknowledgement.
