“I think [Culturefest] is a great way to travel around the world in a short period of time,” Naedia Clarke, a third year pre-vet undergraduate student who ran the Caribbean Club table, stated.

This year, there were many prizes that groups contested for. The award of “Best Exhibit” went to Mexico, while “Most Informative Exhibit” went to Kazakhstan. “Best Food Presentation” was awarded to the Intensive English Institute. For the first time, there was a tie for “Best Entree,” with both Bangladesh and India sharing the prize. German Club, as they have for almost every year, according to the coordinator for international programs and outreach Sayoko Mori, won “Best Dessert.”
