I would like to thank the LSA for awarding me third place for the 2017 Student Abstract Award. I appreciate those who took the time to read the multitude of student abstracts and deliberated over the presumably numerous outstanding applications. This award encourages students to present at the LSA Annual Meeting and assists some of us with the costs associated with attending.
Also, a wholehearted congratulations to the other winners: Emily Moline and Jon Ander Mendia. I look forward to attending your talks in January.
