The NVCC Educational Foundation Honors Symposium was held March 17 at the Annandale Campus. The symposium provides Honors students the chance to present their original research in the form of an 8-to12-minute presentation. There were 21 student presentations representing each NOVA campus.
NOVA Honors faculty and administrators graciously volunteered their time to serve as judges as did students who moderated the five concurrent sessions. The NOVA Honors Program would like to thank the 10 judges and seven moderators for their assistance. The program would also like to give a special recognition and thanks to the NVCC Educational Foundation for generously providing funds so that the winners receive a $250 award. Students will receive their check at the Honors Scholarship Event on April 19 at the Alexandria Campus.
There were six winners in total with four individual winners and a tie between two of the presenters. This event is an excellent opportunity for students to not only practice their presentation skills but to showcase their research interests and join in fellowship with the NOVA Honors community.
After the presentations, a previous winner, and NOVA High School Scholar Hannah Williams, gave a wonderful talk on “Conference 101,” sharing her insight and experiences about participating in local, regional and national Honors conferences. NOVA Honors is very proud of Williams, and all of the students’ hard work and dedication to achieving excellence. Finally, the Honors Program would like to thank the College as they appreciate NOVA’s continued commitment to NOVA Honors students.
