UW-Green Bay’s Kelly House was recognized for excellence in research communication during the WiSys Quick Pitch on April 7.
The student “pitch” competition inspires UW System students to consider the impact of their research and effectively communicate it to the public via three-minute presentations.
House, a psychology and First Nations studies student, took first place and a $300 prize for the presentation “Origins of Imposter Syndrome in Indigenous Communities.”
“I would like to commend Kelly and the other students for their excellent presentations,” said WiSys President Arjun Sanga. “It is great to see the breadth of research activities at UW-Green Bay as communicated by their impressive students.”
House is now eligible to advance to the virtual WiSys Quick Pitch State Final on May 26 to compete against student researchers from across the UW System.
This year’s campus-level WiSys Quick Pitches are taking place virtually due to continued concerns about the pandemic. The UW-Green Bay competitors presented during the same showcase as students at three other UW System schools—UW-Eau Claire, UW-Parkside, UW-River Falls. Winners were selected from each campus.
