LRPA Award for Outstanding Contribution by a Psychology Student

This award recognizes a student whose efforts in the past year have reflected admirably on the profession or practice of psychology in our area. Examples include involvement in advocacy, providing public education, helping to translate research into practice, or providing clinical service to under-serviced client groups. This award is based more on the quality of contribution, rather than on quantity of hours devoted to the effort. Also, the student’s noteworthy efforts may have taken place in the context of credited coursework, practicum or internship experiences, but should stand out in some way for the initiative, professionalism, or quality.
