A committee of faculty and staff reviewed the entrants in this year's competition. Students had to submit responses to questions, judges viewed their presentations and scored them according to their ability to convey the importance of their work. Below you will find links to the student presentations that were judged to be the most clear, inviting, and engaging.
Congratulations to this year's winners!
