What is Student Showcase?

The UAA Student Showcase Program highlights the extraordinary work of students throughout the University of Alaska Anchorage system.  Any best works created in Spring 2014 semester, Summer 2014 semester, Fall 2014 semester can be submitted.  For more policies and procedures about Student Showcase, please click here.

Each year Student Showcase creates an opportunity for dialogue among university and community members. Students submit their best work; an anonymous review is done by a faculty member of the submission discipline; highest marks are presented at the Conference; and distinguished community members are invited to the Conference to evaluate, critique, and comment on students' works.

Student Showcase Academic conference, Award Ceremony, and Journal publication celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2014. The Conference still remains unique in the State of Alaska; only students present original papers and projects. The Student Showcase Committee reviews policies and procedures, promotional materials, and selected award winners.

Awards for top papers & projects included: publication in the 2015 Student Showcase Journal and a $300 cash prize.
