Judges had a very difficult time picking a winner for each category, due to the immense variety of presentations and the impactful nature of each student’s research on the UNCG community and beyond. The winners from the Expo will each receive a $1,000 prize and recognition at the Student Honors Convocation on April 27. Several winners will be invited to participate in May at the State Legislature’s Graduate Education Day in Raleigh.
Thank you to everyone who supported, participated in, and helped put together this year’s amazing Expo. Please click here for more photos of the event!
