University of Baltimore students Santokh (Sam) Singh and Anthony Bellamy are the winners of the 2017 Inspired Discoveries awards, held on May 5.
Inspired Discoveries is a UB symposium that is part of an ongoing effort to recognize and encourage undergraduate research and other academic achievements. The all-day event is a collaboration of Langsdale Library, the Helen P. Denit Honors Program, the Office of Sponsored Research and the Office of the Provost.
Singh, a psychology student, gave a presentation entitled "Narcissistic Behaviors and Social Media Usage," which won this year's research prize. The event's judges said they were greatly impressed with the research itself and with Singh's poise in presenting the results. They agreed that his original research was worthy of publication in a scholarly journal.
Bellamy's documentary video on UB's Second Chance program earned this year's creative prize. The judges praised Bellamy, a management student, for producing a highly professional video that will be helpful in promoting the Second Chance program to the public.
Both winners will receive a $500 award for their efforts.
Lucy Holman, dean of Langsdale Library, offered thanks from the library and the honors program to all the participants.
"Many of our judges and faculty believe this was the best year of presentations in the eight years of the symposium," she said. "There was a breadth and depth to this year's submissions and a wide variety of research and creative topics. All the presenters did an amazing job and should be proud of their efforts."
