CCC Students Receive Awards for Original Research

Nine Clatsop Community College students have been selected as winners of the 2022 Information Literacy Award. The annual prize was divided equally among the nine winners, with two students sharing the award for the nursing student award and seven students who shared the general award. The winners integrated thorough research, synthesizing complex source material, and independent analysis to create captivating new information on a variety of engaging subjects. Each winner received a $133 check from the Clatsop Community College Foundation, which generously funded the competition.

The 2022 winners are:

•          Isabella Anthony, for her work on left-sided heart failure

•          Drake Fischer, who wrote about the damage that sea lions cause to property and salmon habitat

•          Teresa Higuera, who submitted a report on historic preservation problems

•          Emma Johnson, for her research project, Stonehenge: A Novel Interpretation

•          Vance Lump, for thoughtful explication of upgrading of historic wood windows

•          Katelyn Olsen, who examined Bipolar I Disorder

•          Scott Stanford, for his Baldrige assessment on Costco Wholesale

•          William Stevison who explained The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo

•          Shea Stokes, for his paper on Architectural Terra Cotta

Each Spring, students submit their best research projects to the college librarian who evaluates the submissions using information literacy criteria. All nine students illustrated a strong grasp of the rapidly evolving world of information, as well as the ability to incorporate authoritative information into their own research. Students cited an enterprising range of research sources, including websites, local journalists, books, magazines, scholarly journals, streaming movies, and personal interviews.

The college library created the Information Literacy Award to recognize student understanding and application of information literacy knowledge, otherwise known as research skills: the ability to find, access, parse, and use a variety of information sources; the critical evaluation of information; an understanding of intellectual property; and ability to appropriately incorporate information into a college project. This knowledge reflects recursive learning and is acquired throughout study at Clatsop Community College in multiple courses taught by campus faculty and the college librarian.

Isabella Anthony whose paper was on left-sided heart failure has plans to finish CCCs nursing program and then work as a Registered nurse while going to school through OHSU to earn her bachelor’s degree in Nursing. Her ultimate goal is to make a positive difference in peoples’ lives.

Drake Fischer won the award for his paper, The Pinniped Problem: Report on Astoria’s Sea Lion Issue for City Council.

Emma Johnson won the award for her paper, Stonehenge: A Novel Interpretation. She is currently attending ClatsopCC with hopes of earning my associate of general studies. Her plan is to join an acupuncture school and get her certificate or degree. She hopes to someday have my own clinic and practice in the PNW area. Emma loves farming, dogs and meeting new people.
