APA EDD 2016 Student Award Winner

We are honored to share that the winner of the 2016 Holzheimer Memorial Student Scholarship for the Economic Development Division of the American Planning Association is Judd Ullom, a 2015 graduate of the Virginia Tech Master of Urban and Regional Planning program. Judd submitted a selection from his MURP capstone entitled, "Creating a Living Museum to Promote Awareness and Support for Cultural and Economic Diversity in Clarendon (Arlington, Virginia)." The project used technology and social media as a means of cultural preservation to create a low-cost and adaptable method of promoting and preserving economic and social diversity in areas of rapid redevelopment. The project includes five documentary films about the neighborhood and the incorporation of those films into a ‘living museum.' Join us in honoring Judd at the NPC Division Reception, Monday April 4, 6:30-8:30 pm, at the Sheraton, Maryvale Room.
 We also wish to acknowledge two other applicants with Honorable Mention – Akshali Ghandhi (Cornell University) and Mindy Kao (Georgia Institute of Technology). Ghandhi 's insightful study focused on "Economic Development Planning in Ethnic Retail Corridors: Insights from Chicago’s Devon Avenue. Kao submitted an excellent paper on "The Practical Challenges of Urban Manufacturing in Atlanta."
 The division also extends its thanks to the scholarship committee. Chair Margaret Cowell (Virginia Tech), David Bieri (Virginia Tech), Shari Garmise (Association of Public and Land Grant Universities) , Shana Johnson (Foursquare Integrated Transportation Planning), and Greg Schrock (Portland State University) are appreciated for their tireless efforts.
