Niagara County Community College will host a student showcase from 5-7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 21. This event gives students an opportunity to display and explain a project connected to a classroom experience under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Students present their work as either a poster project, table project, art exhibition, or performance.
This year, the student showcase features projects in welding technology, animal training, curing meat, alternative birthing methods and the history of warships.
Cash prizes are given to the winning entries, with a grand prize of $1,000. Funds for the prizes are raised through donations made by faculty and staff, and winning projects are determined by a panel of judges comprised of NCCC staff members and emeritus faculty. Judges review each project using a rubric assessing project appearance, content quality and presentation style.
“What I enjoy most is seeing the extremely high quality of the student’s work and their universal enthusiasm showing it off,” said Dr. Matthew Clarcq, history professor and coordinator of the student showcase.
The event will be held on the second floor of the Learning Commons during NCCC’s spring open house. Attendees will have an opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice Award, with a prize of $250.
