These awards ($200 cash and a plaque) are voted on by judges at the annual LOTS-MC Conference (Best Paper by a panel of judges selected by the Director of Undergraduate Research) and given by the LOTS Advisory Committee and the Undergraduate Research Committee (Dr. Caudill is a member of both committees, but to avoid even an hint of favoritism he does not judge/vote) to the most outstanding presentation at LOTS-MC and from the finalists of “best” paper submissions. These awards are presented by the Director(s) of LOTS-MC and/or the Director of Undergraduate Research at the Academic Awards Dimensions in April.
