Congratulations to our winners!

Competition for the first annual Reeves Library Undergraduate Research Award was fierce, but we are delighted to announce the two winners!

Giannina Gonzalez receives the award for the Junior & Senior division for her project, "Pollution in Beijing." The evaluation panelists were impressed by her "excellent handling of detailed technical information" and "informative, well-written, concise paper" that "is publishable work."

Ashley White was chosen to receive the award at the First-Year & Sophomore level for her work, "The Impact of Fundamentalism on American Women." Panelists noted her "sound development of both the thesis and variations of the content" and appreciated her use of a "wide variety of sources."

Congratulations to both of our award recipients, each of whom will receive a $250 prize in recognition of their work, and thank you to all of the students who entered and to the faculty who sponsored them! We received a number of excellent projects, which made the judging quite a challenge. We hope that those of you who will be at SHU next year will consider entering!
