Congratulations to International Development Studies (IDS) students Toluwani Adekunle, Sana Mahmud and Papa Ndiaye, who won the Scripps International Innovators Cup, a $5,000 award, and a trip to San Francisco. The team, which also included Mechanical Engineering student Sanusi Shehu, was automatically entered into the competition after winning the grand prize ($10,000) and the Diversity Prize ($5,000) in the Ohio University Scripps Innovation Challenge earlier this year.
The team members are now invited to the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) national conference in San Francisco. The team will present the winning project at the conference. Congratulations to these students for this outstanding accomplishment!
