Berglund Center is once again offering its Award for Excellence in Internet Research. The award is open to all students working on a senior capstone on Internet research and its impact or use in today’s world. The winners will receive a $250 prize and have their work published in Berglund’s online Journal, “Interface.”
Seniors must be nominated by their capstone adviser or another faculty member to be in the running. Ten students will be chosen; each of their projects will be reviewed and evaluated before the winning student is announced on May 20 at the awards reception.
All applications, nominations and forms need to be dropped off at either Berglund Hall LL17 or UC box A111 by April 1.
The award winners last year were Jennifer Conner and Max Russell. Conner’s work focused on the politics of journalism and new medias. Russell’s work focused on his development of an online game. The 2009 winner, Samantha Richards, was awarded for creating Boxercast, which used the Internet to broadcast news stories.
