Predictive Plant Phenomics student engagement award

This award is to acknowledge a P3 student’s contribution to learning through an activity – including, but not limited to, a presentation or tour – that was both engaging and displayed a mastery of content that inspired further learning by those in attendance.

Nominations may be provided by P3 students, only.

WINNER: Paul Villanueva

This award is to recognize exceptional peer mentoring by a P3 student to another P3 student. The nominee should have a demonstrated commitment to sharing their knowledge, abilities, and experiences to help develop the capacities of others, in terms of professional or personal growth. 

Nominations may be provided by P3 students, only.

WINNER: Samantha Snodgrass


Predictive Plant Phenomics research excellence award

This award is to recognize the high quality research, pursued by a P3 student, which advances the field of predictive plant phenomics. A student may be awarded based on the uniqueness or strength of their research project, including a project which embodies the collaborative spirit which is required for the interdisciplinary work inherent in predicting plant phenotypes.

Nominations may be provided by P3 faculty, only.

WINNERS: Johnathon Shook & James McNellie
