While the journal has won five previous awards in the undergraduate competition, due to the fact that many graduate students from the MA in Social Sciences participated in the journal, along with many undergraduate history students, this is the first year the journal was entered into the graduate level competition. We are exceptionally proud of the work completed by the two chief editors, Athahn Steinback and Lark Winner, and the dedication and diligence of the editorial board, Alexander Serrano, Andrew Richter, Byron Williams, Danny Cervantes, Eric Lowe, Hannah Norton, Jacqulyne Anton, Jasmine Colorado, Jordan Hammon, Kyle Burke, Martin Votruba, Samuel Briseno, and Sarah Slawson. Copy editors were Brittnie "Bunny" Anglin, Jacqulyne Anton, Jasmine Colorado, Jordan Hammon, and Martin Vortruba.
