Join us as we applaud our 2016-17 winners Ravyn Malatesta and Noah Foster-Koth at a reception in their honor April 14 at 2:30 p.m. in Watzek Library Atrium.

This award was created to highlight the value of good research techniques, reward scholarly research that develops a thoughtful and methodical approach to the research process, and demonstrate how scholarly research develops the critical thinking, reading, writing and speaking skills that are an integral part of a liberal arts education. The awards are given in memory of Dr. James J. Kopp, who was the director of Watzek Library from 1999 until his death in 2010.
