Lakeland Library, in partnership with the Honors Program, is proud to present the Celebration of Research, an annual spring event designed to support and reward students who are interested in showcasing their research projects in a multidisciplinary setting. This year, students are asked to demonstrate knowledge of their research projects through a recorded poster presentation and asynchronous Q&A with judges. The top three independent projects will be awarded gift cards ($300 for first place, $200 for second place, $100 for third place). One top group project will be awarded gift cards that will be divided among group members ($300 total).
