06/08/10 -   How well can you explain how laws are created in the United States?

Two professors from Queens University of Charlotte recently won a $5,000 national award for an infographic they created to explain that complicated process.

"How Our Laws Are Made" was designed by Mike Wirth, assistant professor of new media design, and Dr. Suzanne Cooper Guasco, associate professor and Chair of the History Department at Queens.  They won the top prize in the contest to describe how a bill becomes a law. The "Design for America" contest was sponsored by Sunlight Labs, and the winners were announced at the Gov 2.0 Expo in Washington, D.C. on May 27.
