After viewing nearly 80 video submissions from students at colleges and universities in eight countries on four continents, our panel of judges has selected the three most outstanding entries to the 2014 Noba Student Video Award. These videos will not only receive cash awards but will also be included in the Noba learning modules covering Memory to serve as learning tools for other students.

The Misinformation Effect

Eureka Chen Yew Foong
Linfield College — McMinnville, OR, USA
I started planning for this video in January 2014. Although it was difficult for me to choose just one topic, I ultimately decided on the misinformation effect because I wrote a term paper on eyewitness misidentification last year. Looking back, I'm glad I pushed myself to use animations even though it was my first time doing so. It was challenging yet fun to look for studies that I could talk about in a short video, and tie them together with a concept that viewers could relate to (who hasn't taken a photo of a really good meal?).

Flashbulb Memories

Kara McCord
University of Kentucky — Lexington, KY, USA
This was a great learning opportunity not only for myself, but hopefully for anyone who views my video in the future. Explaining a concept to someone else is a great way to not only learn it, but apply it, and that’s exactly what this video did for me.

Ang Rui Xia & Ong Jun Hao
Singapore Management University — Singapore
Making this video helped me learn much more than the classroom setting alone could offer. This NOBA journey was not just fruitful, it was memorable (no pun intended!)!
