Pi Sigma Alpha, the political science honor society, hosted a research writing competition for the 2022-2023 academic year to stimulate scholarly research and provide a professional development opportunity to students. The competition required a research topic relating to American politics, international relations, comparative politics or political theory alongside a 10-page requirement, 10-15 academic or scholarly references and thorough examination of a narrowly defined topic. Dr. Janine Parry, professor of political science, and Pi Sigma Alpha leadership facilitated the first annual competition.

Pi Sigma Alpha congratulates Haley Jo Gaasbeck for her first-place paper in the competition. Gaasbeck has shown continued dedication and participation in Pi Sigma Alpha since joining the organization in August of 2022. Gassbeck will graduate from the U of A with a degree in political science in May of 2024. She told Pi Sigma Alpha leadership that her favorite part of her degree is that "political science gives me the opportunity to explore so much more knowledge of the world we live in and how the inner functions of it all work," also stating that she "can't wait to see what else is in store!" The next time you see Gaasbeck, make sure to congratulate her!
