If you’ve already read librarian Annette Fisher’s post on the late Barbara Hoffman, you’ll know why winning this award is such an honor. This year, we awarded four awards (with a third-place tie) to students demonstrating writing excellence combined with library research, echoing Barbara’s perennial spirit of curiosity, inquiry, and literary pizzazz.
1st Place: Michael Smith
Michael’s winning paper is titled: “A Different Game: How Popular News Sources Addressed Violence in Video Games After the Sandy Hook Shooting”
Congratulations to Michael and his advising English 160 Professor: Helen Bittel.
