One: Undergraduates Nara Barrows, Arin Delaney, Edith Fikes and Ingrid Haftel won the 2006 UW Library Research Award for their project, Aurora Avenue: Highway Culture in Transition. This project was a collaboration between Urban Archives and CHID 270 Photography: Theoretical Reflections and Ethnographic Applications.
Congratulations! Do check out their project, it is visually superb.
