Society of President’s Scholars seeking submissions for Celebration of Quality

Updated Feb. 15, 2013

The Society of President’s Scholars and Honors College at Northwest Missouri State University are seeking submissions for the annual Celebration of Quality, an interdisciplinary symposium that the organizations sponsor to spotlight exceptional student work throughout the campus.

The Celebration of Quality is open to all Missouri Academy, undergraduate and graduate students and may include work completed either this trimester or any time during the previous year. Students are invited to submit their work for the symposium by Tuesday, Feb. 19.

The Society of President's Scholars and the Honors College also encourages faculty and staff members to recommend the symposium to students and to sponsor their best work. 

This year's symposium will be Friday, March 8, from 3 to 9:30 p.m. Sessions will be before and after a banquet to which all Celebration participants and their faculty sponsors are invited; tickets may also be purchased for guests. 

Posters and artwork will be displayed during the symposium, giving the entire University community a chance to see what students are doing across disciplines and participating students an audience beyond the classroom. In the past, students have presented creative writing, original research and analytical papers. They have given speeches, conducted panel discussions and displayed original works of art and visual summaries of their projects in science, education and business. They have presented dramatic readings and played or analyzed music.
