Lorna Smith wins the Jonathan Sime Award 2018

Lorna Smith, Graduation 2018

17 September 2018

Recent graduate, Lorna Smith, was awarded the Jonathan Sime Award for 2018.

The School of Psychological Science are incredibly pleased to announce that this year one of the students that we nominated Lorna Smith, Supervised by Professor Steve Lewandowsky, has won the award! In particular, the panel have commented that Lorna's work was "very interesting and provided some novel insight into the role of social media on climate change attitudes and the importance of appropriate training. The work was beautifully written, presented in a very professional, concise and polished manner. The research was evidently thoroughly conducted and is a perfect example of multidisciplinary empirical work in the field of people-environment studies".

The nominee for this prize is the student with the Best Undergraduate Dissertation on the topic of Environmental Psychology. Every year, we nominate at least one of our finalist undergraduate students for this prestigious award, and historically our students have done incredibly well with their extended abstracts being either shortlisted or receiving a commendation from the award panel.

The winner may be offered the opportunity for a short paper based on their entry to be published in the Bulletin of the International Association for People-Environment Studies (IAPS). Further information on the award and the abstracts of the three finalists will be published on the website for the Jonathan Sime Award.
