Kelly Power’s essays, titled: “Echoes of the Enlightenment Child: School Spatialities Constructed and Contested” and “Towards a Libertarian Model of Social Pedagogy: Education without Coercion” were highly commended in the Education category of the Undergraduate Awards Programme 2017.

Kelly said: “I was delighted to learn that two of my essays had been highly commended. I'm very passionate about my fields of interest, and it's wonderfully encouraging to think that judges from across the world read and liked my work.
