DNR Grad Students win the ISSRM Quiz Bowl 2 Years in a Row

For the second year in a row, graduate students from Cornell’s Department of Natural Resources claimed the title of Quiz Bowl Champions at the 2012 International Symposium on Society and Resource Management (ISSRM).  Each year, colleges and universities from several nations are invited to enter a team of students to compete in this jeopardy style contest, which has been a highlight of the conference for years.  The questions focus on all aspects of environmental sociology, approaches to social science research, current environmental events, and natural resource management.  Jeffrey Jacquet (a 2012 DNR PhD grad) and Darrick Evensen (a DNR PhD student) returned from the 2011 team to compete once again, accompanied by Chris Clarke (a 2012 graduate from Cornell’s field of Communication), and Ann Armstrong (a 2010 DNR MS grad).
