Two other projects from WWU Spanish majors were also selected for special mention: "Humors Mixologist Ep. 2: La Flor del Belflor," by Kendra Sutton, Aileen García, and Chase Jackson; and "Internal conflicts" by Madison Gard.

Additionally, the project "The Student Loses His Shadow" by WWU student John Carroll was selected as a finalist.

Nishi's project was titled "The Match of the Millennia," and is a video game adaption of act three of Tirso de Molina's "Don Gil de las calzas verdes."

VanLandingham's project, "The Missing Month," is about a chunk of missing time in the narrative between the first and seconds acts of "La Dama Boba," written by Lope de Vega.
