2019 Social Justice Scholar Award Winners

Congratulations are in order for the four finalists in the 4th Social Justice Scholars Award Showcase held at the 2019 Educate-Organize-Advocate conference.  The four finalists were selected from amongst their peers for infusing their academic work with a social justice focus. The scholarship presented impressed our judges, and the results were quite close. We had a two-way tie as well.

 

 

The recipients of this prestigious award are as follows:

1st place: Amy Congdon, Let’s Talk About Race
2nd place: Gabriela Lopez-Gardner, The Socio-Ecological Model of Care
2nd place: Kyra Crabtree, Intersectional Challenges of Women with ASD on UMKC
3rd place: Andy Chapel, A Tool for Empowerment and Advancement

Thanks to everyone who came out to see the presentations, the faculty mentors, the judges, and of course, the students who shared their work with our community!
