The University Libraries Undergraduate Research Contest seeks to recognize and reward outstanding research conducted by undergraduate students at the University of Missouri.
This year the winner of the first place prize of a $500 scholarship is Abby West, a junior studying political science. Her paper, “Saratoga Spells British Defeat,” was written for Dr. Al Zuercher Reichardt’s constitutional democracy course. Reichart stated about Abby’s paper, “Really happy to hear she submitted it to the contest! She’s a fantastic student.”
The second place winner and recipient of a $250 scholarship is Devon Terry, a sophomore in anthropology and psychology. Her paper, “Arno Breker’s Wounded Man: Capturing the Essence of Totalitarianism,” was written for an upper-level German class taught by Dr. Seth Howes and Dr. Nicole Monnier. Dr. Howes said, “My co-professor and I both thought it was an excellent paper, and excellent project, and I am thrilled to hear the committee’s in agreement with us on that front.”
