Update: May 22, 2020
1st place – Effects of Rosa’s Law on Jury Decision Making (first author:  Jaylee R. Tribble)
2nd place – Imagination and Social Media Use in Young Adults (first author:  Whitney Davis)

The Arkansas Psychological Association (ArPA) hosted an undergraduate research poster session for Spring 2020 semester. Due to the closures related to the pandemic, ArPA was not able to organize the traditional convention experience like in past years. In lieu of that, we asked students to submit a YouTube video of their research. The four submissions are listed below for your viewing. If you have questions for the first author of a research project, their email address is provided. If you would like to share your comments with the faculty coordinators of this event please contact Robert J. Hines (UALR) [email protected] or Estefany Soto (UCA) [email protected]. We hope you find the students research interesting and informative.
