On April 29, the excellent research students do in English 102 was recognized by the 2019 English 102 Poster Contest. The First-Year Composition Program, University Libraries, and the Writing Center sponsored this contest for the best poster that visually communicates an English 102 research project.
The finalist posters were judged by Michael Deike, Daniel Wallace, and Tawnysha Greene and were scored on the basis of First Impression, Research Content, Layout/Readability, and Correctness.
Cash prizes for posters were awarded for first, second, and third places.
1st place: Savannah Davidson, “Is the Blue Light System Making Students Feel Safe on Campus?” (Instructor: Kat Powell)
2nd place: Diana Son, “Exploring the University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Diversity Dilemma: The Effects of Hate Crime on Students’ UT Experience” (Instructor: Kat Powell)
3rd place: Amber Scruggs, “Cereal Companies Marketing to Kids” (Instructor: Julia McLeod)
All finalist posters were displayed in the Mary Greer Room in the Hodges Library during the contest.
Congratulations to the winners (and their teachers)!
