Dear CAS Undergraduate Students,
The annual Arts and Sciences Awards Ceremony provides special opportunities for the College of Arts and Sciences and its faculty to acknowledge some of the outstanding work completed by students in the College. This is an opportunity for you to share the work you accomplished in the past year in the Humanities, Natural Sciences and Mathematics and/or Social and Behavioral Sciences, and Visual and Performing Arts.
We are accepting entries for this year’s undergraduate student award ceremony. You should e-mail your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. Entries will be judged on quality and originality. Submissions should be carefully presented by referencing the submission notes below.
Please note that the selection committees are seeking quality work in a variety of forms, completed in the past 12 months:
Projects in the Humanities focus more on critical/analytical work; past entries have included literary criticism, film criticism, philosophical essays, and theological essays. (Note: student work in such areas as poetry, journalism, and fiction, even if done in a Humanities class like English, should go to the Visual and Expressive Arts category, below.)
Projects in Natural Sciences and Mathematics, past entries often featured work done with a faculty mentor in which the student has contributed significant creative input.
Projects in Social and Behavioral Sciences focus on pertinent social phenomena; past entries have included original historical or social science analysis, and they have used both quantitative and qualitative methods.
Projects in Visual and Expressive Arts focus more on creative expression; past entries have included poems, fiction, creative non-fiction, journalism, painting, music, sculpture, photography, performances, screenplays, multimedia presentations, film and video productions, and exhibits.
The deadline for entries is Monday, March 29. If you have any questions about a potential entry, feel free to contact any of the chairs listed below or Brittany Lenig email@example.com, Operations Coordinator in the Dean's Office.
