Congratulations to our Spring 2012 Student Conference award winners and to all those participating students who made the conference such a success. This semester, we had a first for EUI in the form of multimedia panel presentations from students in our pilot multimedia course program, and the inauguration of an award category for those presentations. EUI awards went to: Will DeWayne Leone for his panel presentation, "How Visible Queer Culture Solidifies Privilege and Segregation in Queer Spaces at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign"; Shanita Cadney for her multimedia presentation, "Student Workers Relationships within University Dining"; Leong Wai Kin, Ao Wai Hou, Tong Kin Wai for their poster presentation, "International Perspectives on the Relationship between Citizenship and Service in the University Context"; and a special multimedia poster award was also given to the ART 191/RHET 233 classes for "Documenting Allen Hall's LBGTQIA Community." All award winners received a $25 gift card to the Illini Union Bookstore. Congratulations also go to Janir Nuno da Cruz on being the winner of the University Library's EUI Poster Award, for his "Greek Life at UIUC: Is racial segregation an issue?" Janir also received a $25 gift card to the IUB. An honorable mention was also given by the Library to Ip Weng Si, Wong Tin Kei, and Kuan Hong Cheng for their poster "Dorm Life: Does living in the residence hall change your sleep patterns?" We would like to especially thank Merinda Hensley for her continued support of and work with EUI and the support of the Library for making the poster sessions possible, the Community Informatics Initiative for their support of our program, the Library/IT Student Fee Committee for their support of our pilot multimedia program, and our CITES Academic Technologies and Digital Media partners for their ongoing technology and training support.
