Competing against a group of about 500, three students in UTC’s Honors College came out as winners in the National Collegiate Honors Council’s national meeting—the largest number of winners from any university at the conference.
The three students—Olivia George, Simar Singh and Zeke Starr—landed first-, second- and third-place finishes, respectively, in the competitions for student-made posters.
There were 10 separate categories in the contest and students were required to design posterboard presentations on their chosen subjects.
George, in the college’s Innovations in Honors program, won first place in the Natural Sciences and Mathematics category for her work on “Washcoat, Viscosity, and Effective Catalytic Substrates.”
Singh, also in Innovations in Honors, came in second in Business, Engineering and Computer Sciences with his poster on “Efficacy of Fuzzy Electronics in Space.”
The contest was judged by a team of honors faculty and administrators.
