Five Purdue University students showed the many reasons why they love Purdue Libraries in the Purdue University Libraries’ fourth annual “Why I Love Purdue Libraries” video contest.

The contest, which was announced last fall and is supported by the Purdue Federal Credit Union, was open to Purdue students and received several entries for the 2016-17 competition. All entries were judged by members of the Undergraduate Student Libraries Advisory Council.

Three videos – first, second, and third place – were selected as winners of the first $1,000 prize, second $750 prize, and third $500 prize. Five students (two on the first-place team and two on the third-place team) produced the videos. They include:

  • First Place – Jacob Russell (junior, information systems management) and Preeya Sharma (junior, finance): each will receive half of the $1,000;
  • Second Place – Tré Bennett (senior, computer graphics technology): $750; and
  • Third Place – Jing Yao (sophomore, industrial management) and Xiaoping (Mary) Zhu (sophomore, business management); each will receive half of the $500.
