Students Promoting Awareness of Research Knowledge (SPARK) is the name of the student research-writing program at the University of Guelph, which is ramping up its blogging activities through the newly named SPARK Speaks. You can subscribe to new post notification emails — such as SPARK participant Natalie Osborne’s online radio news award from the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists — at the bottom of the right hand navigation bar.
