On Friday, March 7, 2020, Dayo Afekare placed first in the 2020 SPE Eastern North America Regional Paper Contest (PhD division) held at LSU. Dayo competed against 3 other individuals, including 1 other LSU student and 2 students from Penn State, in the PhD division.

In addition to the PhD division, participants competed in the Masters division and the Bachelors division.  Competitors traveled from ULL and Penn State to compete with LSU students in the Eastern North America region.  The event, hosted by our LSU chapter, was well-organized and well-attended.
