The Reeves Library Undergraduate Research Award was created to recognize and encourage the development of information fluency in resource-based research. Each award recipient is recognized at honors convocation and will receive a monetary prize in the amount of $250.
Congratulations to both of our 2015 winners!
Toni Antonucci was selected as the award-winner for the Junior & Senior division. Her paper, "Effect of BPD Parents on Children: Do Attachment Styles Differ?" impressed the evaluation committee by exhibiting "the top levels of Bloom's Taxonomy in terms of what is created with the research and how it is evaluated." Another panelist wrote, "This well-written research submission begs continuation. I cannot wait to read the study." Ms. Antonucci's entry was sponsored by Dr. Jeff Bartel.
Jordan Penney received the award at the First-Year/Sophomore level for "Miss-Representation: Exploring the Effects of Media on Body Image in American Girls." Her paper was praised by the evaluation panel for its "mix of source types, with appropriate incorporation of popular sources." Ms. Penney's entry was sponsored by Dr. Brittany Edge.
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!
Giannina Gonzalez received 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."
