The St. Lawrence University Libraries are seeking entries for the annual contest for outstanding undergraduate research projects focusing on Northern New York, including the Adirondacks.  Three awards are presented each year for research in the Arts & Humanities, the Natural Sciences, and the Social Sciences.  To be considered for this prize, the student work must focus on topics, issues, or concerns having to do with Northern New York or with St. Lawrence University history, and must demonstrate that the author made use of archives, books, journals, research databases, or other resources associated with the University Libraries.  Eligible projects include traditional research papers, online projects, fiction, poetry, or multimedia works. 

The competition is open to all current full time undergraduate SLU students for academic work completed between June 1, 2023 and May 31, 2024.  Submissions must be sent to John Payne, Director of Libraries, by June 1.
