Welcome to Fall 2020 Honors Project Session.
The old saying “necessity is the mother of invention” was never more true than translating what is typically an in-person poster event to the virtual world. This fall, students took their semester-long honors contracts and translated their work into 5-8 minute slideshow videos. These videos help explain what they did, how they did, and what their results were. A variety of disciplines is represented here – from Biology to English, Business to Communications, our students did a deep dive into content that interested them greatly.
We hope you enjoy viewing the full gallery of honors videos. We’ll miss the dialogue and discussion an in-person project session typically brings, but the honors committee is still grateful to share the work of our students with the larger Chesapeake College community.
After two rounds of rigorous judging, the Honors Committee is pleased to announce the winners of the Fall 2020 Project Session. They are:
1st Place Winner – Awarded a $250 VISA Giftcard: Olivia Santos
“A View into the Life of an EMS Professional”

2nd Place Winner – Awarded a $150 VISA Giftcard: Oscar Garcia

3rd Place Winner – Awarded a $100 VISA Giftcard: Katelyn Crouch

The Honors Committee would like to thank all honors project students for their hard work during what has been an extraordinary semester. The committee would also like to thank all the professors who served as honors contract advisors, as well as Vice-President David Harper and President Clifford Coppersmith for their support of the honors program. Special thanks go to the College Relations & Marketing Department for lending their advice, talents, and help creating the materials for this virtual project session. This would not have been possible without them.
