UB student, Ben Shaw, a senior mechanical engineering major, is the winner of the UB Libraries’ 2014 Oscar Contest! We received 218 entries in this year’s contest, and ten students guessed all eight categories correctly. The ten names were entered in a random drawing, with Shaw’s name selected as the first-place winner.
“I’m very happy that the UB Libraries sponsored this contest,” Shaw said when notified of his prize, a Canon PowerShot A1400 Camera, “because if there are two things I know I love in the world, it’s movies and prizes!”
Shaw, along with second-place winner, UB graduate student, Paul Zwirecki (history), and third-place winner, grad student Brad Hamm (social work), also received a $25 gift card to AMC theatres.
