master's thesis competition

RELEASED: Nov. 24, 2010

EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire graduate Guy Lewinski was awarded first place in UW-Eau Claire's annual Distinguished Master's Thesis Competition.

Each year faculty and staff members are encouraged to nominate theses considered exceptional for the competition, with judging provided by the Graduate Council faculty committee. For this year's competition, the nominee must have been awarded a master's degree in fall 2009, spring 2010 or summer 2010.

Dr. Paulus Lazda, professor of history, submitted Lewinski's thesis, titled "A Failed Union: The Germans, the Ukrainians, and the Second Polish Republic, 1921-1939." Lazda was Lewinski's faculty adviser during his time at UW-Eau Claire. In his letter of recommendation, Lazda spoke highly of Lewinski, of River Falls. Lewinski holds a bachelor's degree in history with a minor in German as well as a master's degree in history from UW-Eau Claire.

Lewinski will receive recognition for his work as well as a $200 award. In addition, his thesis will be submitted to the Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools competition. Results of that competition will not be available until spring 2011.
