The change in name from “Pella” to “Thesis Honor Awards” recognizes that there may be more than one honor awarded. The jury has been invited to review the work and decide how to recognize merit. This year we hope that there will be support from Pella, and an additional external sponsor. The program will fund the awards should these gifts received in time.
