2013 Student Showcase Policies & Procedures
The Student Showcase is open to University of Alaska Anchorage students from the following campuses: Anchorage, Matanuska-Susitna, Chugiak/Eagle River, Kenai Peninsula, Kachemak Bay, Kodiak, and Prince William Sound. Works submitted may be on any subject, but must have been produced for a UAA course or program in spring, summer, or fall semesters of 2012. Submissions are not limited to written works and may include performance, visual art, music and other mediums.
I. Application. Consider your best coursework produced in your class over the past year and review it with your professor. Submitted works must be no longer than 30 typed, double-spaced pages, (excluding bibliography), longer works must be condensed to meet this page limit. Entries, other than written projects, must include a slide, a tape/CD, website or picture of the subject matter, along with a specific description of the work.
II. Screening. Once you submit your application and copy of your work, an anonymous review will be done by a faculty member of your Showcase submission discipline. If it receives a high enough score, you will be invited to present your work in the Student Showcase Conference April 4-5, 2013 (with the possibility of additional dates, depending on the number of presentations). Conference invitations will be announced in March 2013.
III. Conference and Awards. At the conference you will make a presentation of approximately 10 minutes followed by 5 minutes of Q&A and dialogue. A distinguished community commentator will evaluate your presentation along with your specific work. That score is combined with the faculty score to determine the Student Showcase winners who will be published in the journal. All students who present at the conference are recognized in the journal/CD. All student presenters, their faculty, and commentators, are invited to the Showcase Awards luncheon on Saturday, April 6, 2013 where the awards will be announced. Awards include a $300 cash prize and publication in the 2013 Student Showcase Journal.
Only one entry may be submitted per student. Submissions are now accepted for 2013. Entries are due on Friday, February 1, 2013 in Student Union 218. Students will be required to present their work at the Student Showcase Conference in order to be considered for awards/publication. The 2013 Showcase Conference is scheduled for April 4-5, 2013 (with the possibility of additional dates, depending on the number of presentations).
