UGA students win public policy contest

Four UGA students won the top prize in the fourth annual Public Policy Challenge National Invitational.

The winning proposal, called (fem)me, is a plan to distribute feminine hygiene products to homeless and transitional women in Athens and ultimately throughout Georgia. Master’s students Brianna Roberts and Phillip McAuley from the School of Public and International Affairs and Nicole La Tournous and Paula Buchanan from the College of Public Health competed in the invitation-only competition. As national winner, the UGA team will receive a $10,000 prize to implement its proposal.
