Celebration of Research

Lakeland Library, in partnership with the Honors Program, is proud to present the Celebration of Research, an annual spring event designed to support and reward students who are interested in showcasing their research projects in a multidisciplinary setting. Students are asked to demonstrate knowledge of their research projects during a poster presentation session. Presentations will be judged, and gift cards will be awarded to the first, second, and third place posters during the event reception.

Funded in part by the Honors Program and The Lakeland Foundation.
