The 2022 Nyquist speech contest winners are in. Judy Kimball, Vice President of Marketing at GLG, and Evan Seguirant, Senior recruiting manager and Twitter, served as the judges. Both Judy and Evan coached in the Center years ago when they were undergrads at UW.

This year, the contest was open to all UW undergraduates. Students submitted speeches in response to the theme: What lessons should UW learn from the COVID pandemic? The theme allows for a wide range of ideas about how the UW community should plan for a post-pandemic era. Kaitlyn Laibe won first place. Jamie Christiansen won second. There was a tie for third between Jamie Christiansen and Liana Wu.
