Recent Graduates Receive Political Science Association Awards

The New York State Political Science Association (NYSPSA) awards committee selected papers written by two recent Hamilton graduates for the 2009 Best Student Papers honors. Blake Hulnick ’09 wrote “The Politics of State-Based Electoral College Reform” and Deanna Edwards ’09 wrote “Outsourcing the Military: Blackwater, Halliburton-KBR, and a New Military-Industrial Complex.”

Both students had presented their papers, which were their government senior honors theses, at the 63rd Annual New York State Political Science Association Conference at John Jay College in New York City from April 24 – 25. The conference provided a venue for scholars in political science and related disciplines to meet and discuss their work.

The two award recipients will be invited to the 2010 NYSPSA conference where they will be presented with award certificates. They each received a monetary award for their achievement. Susan Stanton ’09, who also presented at the NYSPSA conference, received an honorable mention award.
