The online project they were recognized for was an “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) session on the interactive website Reddit staged in November, called “Temple Grandin Talk to Reddit — Now Most Popular Science AMA. Ever.”
“Communications is a rapidly changing and fascinating business, and I am proud of … our team at Colorado State,” said Tom Milligan, vice president for External Relations at CSU.
“Clearly, Professor Grandin is a global thought leader, and our social media team shared her and our university with the world through this award-winning effort.”
Grandin’s Reddit AMA became the most popular and highest-rated session in Reddit’s Science section, receiving nearly 4,200 votes and generating more than 1,300 comments.
The Reddit session dealt with autism. Grandin, who is a leading researcher in animal welfare, has learned to cope with her autism.
