October Madness: Raffle Winner

by Heather Thorstensen | Oct 13, 2015


It's time to announce the inaugural October Madness raffle winner.
Congratulations to Alexis Verger! Alexis won a membership to Sigma Xi's Affiliate Circle, with the annual dues waived for one year (a $70 value). Membership in the Affiliate Circle includes a one-year subscription to Sigma Xi's magazine, American Scientist.

 Anyone who nominated a 2015 Nobel Prize laureate to our October Madness prediction brackets could be entered in the raffle. In this first year, we had one successful nominator: Jamie Vernon, Sigma Xi's director of science communications and publications. Jamie nominated Arthur McDonald, who went on to share this year's Nobel Prize in Physics with Takaaki Kajita for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, which shows that neutrinos have mass.

Because Jamie is a member of our staff, he passed on his prize to one of the other nominators, and we picked Alexis randomly. 

Congratulations again, Alexis! Look for my email for more details about joining Sigma Xi's Affiliate Circle.
