The Arts Showcase is a juried event that promotes all selected student artists and their work without giving monetary awards for "best in category".
Oral and poster presentations are assigned to prize categories that are different from the titles of the presentation panels. Categories vary from year to year depending on submissions, but all presenters have an equal chance (typically between 1 in 3 and 1 in 4) of winning a prize.
Common presentation prize categories from previous years:
|Purpose and Content||articulation and support of central idea/purpose|
|Project Design||understanding and justification of methods and/or interpretation|
|Findings and Conclusions||identification and discussion of the project’s scholarly contributions|
|Questions and Answers||ability to answer questions from the audience|
|Language||use of standard English and technical language|
|Presentation Structure||content, design, layout, use of visual aids (if applicable)|
|Presentation Style||vocal delivery, eye contact, body language, attire|
