Writing and research skills are vital to student success in school and in the workforce. As Orem Campus Librarian, Karen Newmeyer, has stated: “All the information in the world isn’t going to do you any good until you self-incorporate that knowledge to the point that you can communicate that information to others.” To encourage student scholarship and communication/writing skills, and to reward excellence, the Library Students Research Award is being offered for the best student paper written each quarter.
Student papers created to fulfill a class assignment for any residential or online class, that received an “A” grade, is eligible for submission. Papers will be judged on sophistication and depth of research, qualify of sources, excellence in writing, accuracy in APA citations, and originality. All papers will be reviewed by a panel of three faculty members.
Submissions are due by October 1, 2012. The winner will be announced on October 22, 2012 and will receive a Kindle e-reader.
We are very excited to receive and read these student papers.
