Congratulations to Maggie Hartman for receiving the ESO Award for Excellence in Extension and Outreach!
We were not surprised that Maggie, a Master's student in our lab, won the Excellence in Extension and Outreach Award from our departmental Entomology Student Organization for 2019-2020. Her extension/outreach activities included: 1) volunteering for "Discover a Swamp", our lab's Maryland Day demonstration, as well as preparing a poster for presentation at two Entomological Society of America meetings, 2) providing insect outreach programs for children at the Calvert County Library and the University of Maryland Childcare Center, 3) working with the University of Maryland Home and Garden Information Center to upgrade their website on pollinators and their plants, and 4) providing an alfalfa weevil factsheet for the Maryland Cooperative Extension Service. All of this was done while doing her usual research and teaching responsibilities. Well done and well-deserved, Maggie!
