Our field and Department benefit tremendously from the efforts of our graduate students to engage the public and contribute to our diverse community. These efforts range from giving Planetarium shows, to leading our Diversity Journal Clubs, to engaging with OSU student groups, to counseling younger graduate students and beyond. The Ann S. Tuttle Citizenship, Engagement, and Outreach Prize recognizes these important contributions. A $500 cash prize will be awarded to a current graduate student for exceptional effort and impact in outreach, public engagement, or service to our field, University, or Department. The Graduate Studies Committee calls for nominations from anyone in the Department yearly, but accepts nominations at any time.
