The NEASIS&T Student Travel Award jury is pleased to announce this year's winner!

The 2011 NEASIS&T Student Travel Award goes to:

Adrienne Smith
adrienne.smith2 at mail.mcgill.ca
McGill University
School of Information Studies (Knowledge Management stream) 

for her essay addressing the questions: 
    * Why she wishes to attend the 2011 ASIS&T Annual Meeting
    * How she believes she will be able to use the conference experience to further her career
    * How might NEASIS&T or ASIS&T benefit if she receives the award

Ms. Smith's essay was impressively well-written and persuasive.  She concludes that "simply joining professional associations does not automatically impact one's career; like knowledge, a membership becomes more valuable the more it is used.  Conferences and events like the Annual Meeting are opportunities to 'get known' and to begin building relationships with colleagues working in diverse environments.  I believe that this conference experience will help me to establish a presence among my peers while maintaining momentum during my transition from a student to a professional."

Ms. Smith will receive up to $1000 to help defray the costs of attendance at the 2011 ASIS&T Annual Meeting, "Bridging the Gulf: Communication and Information in Society, Technology, and Work" which takes place October 7-12, 2011 in New Orleans, Louisiana.  http://asist.org/asist2011/am11cfp.html

Finally, many thanks to the wise and diligent jury members: Lisa Junghahn and Remlee Green.
