Lillie Williams.A video about WSU cryogenics research produced by DTC senior Lillie Xi Max Williams took first place in the undergraduate category of The Science Coalition’s “Fund It Forward” Student Video Challenge.

The video challenge asked undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled at one of the more than 50 research universities that make up the non-profit Science Coalition to create a video explaining why science matters and to remind members of U.S. Congress that now is the time to invest in research for the future of our nation.

The winning video is available on William’s YouTube channel and can be viewed on the coalition’s website.

“I want to congratulate Lillie and her colleagues in the HYPER Lab for placing first in the undergraduate Fund It Forward Student Video Challenge run by The Science Coalition,” said WSU President Kirk Schulz. “WSU’s world class research can change the world, but being able to communicate the importance of this work will help Congress and others understand the benefit of the investment in science. Cougar nation is proud of the work of our students and students around the country. Go Cougs!”

Williams graduated earlier this month with a double degree in digital technologies and culture and strategic communication.
