The UAA Student Showcase highlights the extraordinary work of students throughout the University of Alaska Anchorage system. Student Showcase creates an opportunity for dialogue among university and community members. Students submit their best original papers and projects from 2017. An anonymous review is done by a faculty member of the submission discipline, the highest marks are presented at the Student Showcase Conference. Distinguished community members are invited to the Conference to evaluate, critique, and comment on students' work.

The Student Showcase Conference and Award Ceremony celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2014. The Conference remains unique in the State of Alaska as only students present original papers and projects.
