Liu Receives Honorable Mention in Oswald Research and Creativity Competition

Economics undergraduate student Elena Liu (Mentor: Dr. Yoko Kusunose) received an honorable mention in the social sciences category of the 56th Oswald Research and Creativity Competition for her work, "The Coffee in Your Cup: Reviewing Fair Trade’s Impact on Development." 
The Oswald Research and Creativity Competition was established in 1964 by then-President John Oswald as part of the university’s Centennial Celebration. The program is intended to promote creativity in all fields of study and provides annual awards in seven categories. The competition accepts reports, all forms of creativity, and scholarship by undergraduate students.
Awards in each category are: First Place: $350; Second Place: $200; and Honorable Mention, if applicable. Entries are judged on originality, clarity of expression, scholarly or artistic contribution, and the validity, scope, and depth of the project or investigation. A very special thank you to our judges for their support of undergraduate student research.
