2019 spotlight on Student work in museums (swim)
University students throughout our region are engaged in challenging and important work in southeastern museums. They are doing research, producing exhibits, conducting oral history interviews, creating content for websites, and developing public programs. SEMC is committed to recognizing and rewarding excellence in museum work done by students through the annual Spotlight on Student Work in Museums (SWIM) Awards.
Students may submit proposals to participate in two 2019 SWIM activities at SEMC’s annual meeting in Charleston, SC: a program session with four ten-minute presentation slots, and a poster session which will showcase additional student projects in a display area at the conference, which the students will staff. All students selected for the four session slots and the poster presentations will receive a certificate in recognition of their achievements.
2019 SWIM Poster Session Information
Each SWIM presenter will receive a Certificate of Participation and will be recognized before the SEMC's Awards Luncheon, 10:30 am. A group photograph of all SWIM participants will be taken at the end of the poster session.Questions?
