Senior Art History major, Madisson Yarnell, won second place in the Arts and Humanities category of UNCG’s annual Honors Symposium on Friday, March 25th with her paper “The Virgin’s Journey Through Tuscany”: A Study of Tuscan Annunciation Paintings Through the Italian Renaissance.”

The Honors Symposium offers outstanding undergraduate students at UNCG the opportunity to participate in an academic conference with each student presenting a ten minute paper followed by a question and answer session. Monetary awards typically of $250, $150, and $100 are given in the three categories of Arts & Humanities, Sciences & Professional Schools, and Visiting Non-UNCG papers. Graduating students who complete the program are invited to an Honors Banquet at which they will receive recognition of their achievements.
