Service Showcase: Juried Poster Competition
The Service Showcase is an opportunity for students to share their service projects and experiences with the University community and Lawrence community partners. We are seeking students who have completed service projects or placements that have made an impact on them as students and the community. This event will provide students an opportunity to network with service minded professionals, practice their presentation skills, and add additional experience to their educational portfolio. All KU students are invited to submit proposal. This event is held in conjunction with the Service Celebration event held every April.
Monetary awards will be available for winning posters.
