2020 Multimodal Contest Winners
For this year, we have a total of eight submissions throughout the categories. There’s only one category that’s not included and that’s the School of Education. However, this is a step in the right direction in comparison to the previous two years, which is always exciting. The Grand Prize Winner for this year comes from the School of Arts and Sciences again, Marjorie Anne, for her piece “Meeting Muslims.” Congratulations Marjorie, and congratulations to everyone who participated this year. Let’s take a look at the rest!
School of Arts and Sciences
The winner for this category, who again was also the Grand Prize winner, was Marjorie Anne for her piece “Meeting Muslims.” The piece is for those seeking to learn more about Islam and those who have preconceived ideas about Muslims that may be inaccurate. I also was aiming for it to be a resource for journalists, teachers, and students. The hope was to provide people with a different view and understanding of what practitioners of Islam look like in the United States.
