UW-Eau Claire Student
Wins Prize for Globalization Essay

MAILED: May 1, 2002

         EAU CLAIRE  A UW-Eau Claire student was one of eight students recently honored for their work, research and writings regarding globalization and peace issues at the Wisconsin Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies' annual student conference at Edgewood College April 6. The theme of this year's conference was "Globalization: Ends and Means."
         Junior Nadezdha Stoyanova, a political science major from Bulgaria, earned a $100 Ray and Jeannette Short Scholarship prize for her third-place essay, "Eastern Europeans Participate in Globalization but Do Not Benefit From It." The WIPCS co-sponsored the 2002 World Peace Study Essay Contest Awards with Edgewood College.
         Based at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, the WIPCS is a non-profit organization whose members include the ten University of Wisconsin campuses, UW-Extension and 12 other private and public colleges and universities in the state. The institute shares expertise, reference materials and an annual journal with its members and holds two conferences each year, one for the general public and another for students.
