Three COBE students, Trung Pham, Kelsey Cooper and Paloma Chumacero, have been selected to participate in the Undergraduate Poster Competition at the 2019 Association of Private Enterprise Education (APEE) annual conference. This year’s conference will be held in Nassau, Bahamas, on April 5-8. COBE students will compete with 43 other students from universities such as Florida State, Utah State, Wesleyan, Baylor and Texas A&M.
Pham, Cooper and Chumacero are economics majors. Pham’s paper is titled “Is the Lack of Labor Force Participation offset by Alternative Income?” Cooper’s paper is titled “Water Utilization and Water Quality in Endogenous Economic Growth: A replication of Khanji and Hudson.” Chumacero’s paper is “The Great Recession: Have We Learned Our Lesson?” The poster competition will take place on the evening of April 6 at the Atlantis Paradise Island resort, site of the 2019 APEE Conference.
These Boise State students were nominated by Allen Dalton, adjunct faculty in the Department of Economics. This will be the fifth consecutive year that Dalton has taken students to participate in the APEE undergraduate competition.
