On April 21, ZSR will host the sixth annual Senior Showcase to celebrate outstanding research and artistic theses or projects completed by Wake Forest University undergraduates. Since 2010, the Showcase has featured the research of 20 former students, representing 12 academic fields, from philosophy to theatre to anthropology to chemistry. As an additional recognition of each student’s achievement, winners will receive a $1,000 prize.
The Showcase gives students the opportunity to share their research or projects before the Wake Forest community at a public event. A committee of library faculty will select up to five students, one per College division, from a pool of nominees recommended by College faculty. Projects in progress or completed during the 2014-2015 academic year are eligible. The review committee will evaluate submissions using the following criteria:
- Clear statement of purpose
- Evidence of thorough research
- Credible sources
- Development of the idea
- Well organized
- Well written
- Sound reasoning
- Importance to the field
- Strength of the faculty advisor’s recommendation, summarizing the above Impact areas
