The College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln launched the CASNR Change Maker Competition for prospective and current students who dare to dream big and do the extraordinary to address worldwide issues. The video competition was held April 20 through May 15 and attracted more than 50 submissions, each pitching their big idea to address our global society’s grandest challenges.
Eight full-tuition scholarships for the 2020-21 academic year for incoming CASNR students were awarded on June 1. The students’ videos were evaluated on their creativity in tackling the grand challenge(s) of their choosing, how they will achieve it and leave their mark on the world, and alignment of their idea with one or more of the University of Nebraska’s aspirations. A committee comprised of Emeriti faculty, CASNR faculty, staff and students have selected these three Forensic Science students among eight other CASNR students:
Kaitlyn Lee ; Mansfield, Texas
Aliyah Muniz ; Papillion, Nebraska
Lydia Storm ; Lawrence, Kansas
We look forward to having them on campus with us in the Fall!
