Every year, the Global Undergraduate Awards celebrate original and creative thinking among students across the world, and this year, our very own University of Newcastle student and Barahineban resident Abbie Smith has been recognised as a Highly Commended Entrant.
If you have a piece you are proud of, you might as well give it a go!
The Undergraduate Awards is the world’s leading undergraduate awards programme, and Highly Commended Entrants are ranked in the top 10% of all submissions to their category. Abbie, studying a Bachelor of Teaching (Humanities) (Honours), has been recognised in the ‘History’ category for her essay on Aboriginal Activism from 1933 to 1967.
Abbie’s advice to future students considering entering the awards? “Just do it!” she says.
“You can enter works that you have made for your university courses. If you have a piece you are proud of, you might as well give it a go!”
