Northwest Missouri State University undergraduate and graduate students, as well as students at the University’s Missouri Academy of Science, Mathematics and Computing are invited to submit their best work for presentation at the annual Celebration of Quality.

Submissions for this year’s Celebration of Quality are being accepted online or to Dr. Jenny Rytting, assistant professor of English, until Friday, Feb. 14. Students may submit any successfully completed work from the current trimester or the previous year.

The Celebration of Quality is an interdisciplinary symposium spotlighting exceptional student work throughout campus and is jointly sponsored by the Society of President’s Scholars and the Honors College.

“The symposium gives the entire university community a chance to see what students are doing across disciplines,” said Rytting, Society of President’s Scholars sponsor. “It gives participating students an audience beyond the classroom.”

Past submissions have ranged from creative writing and research papers, to speeches and visual summaries of projects in science, education and business.

“It showcases students and their work, while giving them presentation experience and the chance to earn a scholarship for the success they have earned in their academics,” said Kara Huen, president of Society of President’s Scholars. “The event also showcases the importance of academics and encourages good scholarship and success in every department.”

The symposium will be from 3 to 9 p.m. Friday, Mar. 14. The event includes sessions before and after a congratulatory banquet where submissions will be displayed for students and their faculty sponsors. Tickets are also available for guests.
