TU students working on this project included Jordan White, Christina Kuzmic, Sophia Olsen and Beth Waller writers; Andrea Maduro and Eryn Sweeney-Demezas designers. For her logo design Madeline McKeever took a Gold Addy for TABERC (Tulsa Area Bioscience Education and Research Consortium). Scholarships went to two students in Communication Kyra McNamara and Justin Johnson.
Another prestigious award is the Eddy award.
