Ananya is being recognized for her paper, “Lewis Hine: Standing in the Shadows Casting a Light on a World of Darkness. Emily submitted her paper “Julia Child: The Woman Who Challenged the Stereotypical Role of Women in the Kitchen One Meal at a Time.” As student researchers, they used a variety historical archives, uncovering evidence to answer their research questions. Countless hours and persistence paid off with papers that are engaging and informative.
According to the New York State Archives website:
The main purpose of the awards program is to encourage students to explore the wealth of historical records held in historical records repositories in New York State.
