Psychology’s 2019 Prairie Undergraduate Research Conference

Honours thesis students from UWinnipeg, University of Manitoba, and University of North Dakota participated in the 2019 Prairie Undergraduate Research Conference on May 3rd. We congratulate the presenters for completing this capstone course and event, and express our gratitude to faculty, staff, and volunteers who helped with the Conference.

2019 marks the first year that the Department awarded two students for outstanding oral presentations: the Santesso award acknowledged the best presentation in the natural sciences category, and the McIntyre award acknowledged the best presentation in the social sciences category. The thrilled recipients of the awards were Emma Leppky (UW) and Stephanie Westra (UM) respectively.

Best wishes to the graduating thesis students as they embark on new endeavours!
