Nine Clatsop Community College students have been selected as winners of the annual Information Literacy Award. Two students shared the general award, while seven students won the prize for Nursing students. The winners integrated extensive research, synthesizing complex source material and independent thinking to create compelling reading material. Each winner for the general award received a $300 check, while the Nursing students each received $85 from the Clatsop Community College Foundation, who once again funded the prize this year.
