2018 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 museum work done by students through the annual Spotlight on Student Work in Museums (SWIM) Awards.
Students may submit proposals to participate in two SWIM activities at SEMC’s annual meeting: a program session with four ten-minute presentation slots, and a poster session in a display area which the students will staff on Wednesday, October 10, 10:45 am– noon. All student presenters will receive a certificate in recognition of their achievements.
