Be a part of the Saint Leo University Community for a Celebration of Academic Excellence
This year’s Celebration of Academic Excellence will be held on Thursday, April 7, 2022 with concurrent student presentations from 1:00-3:50pm followed by an Awards Ceremony at 4:00pm in the SCC Boardrooms and a reception immediately after at the SCC Front Logia.
Classes will follow a shortened schedule to allow for participation throughout the day.
Students must have the sponsorship of a Faculty Mentor who has overseen the student(s)’ work, who attests to its readiness for the event, and who will complete and submit the electronic submission form (below) on their behalf.
Students may present in one of two categories: (1) presentation or (2) poster/artwork session, but may not participate in more than one session. Each recorded presentation should be no more than 10 minutes long.
Excellence for an Oral Presentation Award
Students wishing to be considered for the Excellence for an Oral Presentation award must have their faculty Mentor indicate this on the submission form. The Academic Excellence Committee will select four finalists from the abstracts submitted. The four finalists will each receive a certificate of distinction and one will be awarded the Excellence for an Oral Presentation Award.
Oral presentations will be judged for creativity, organization of content, recorded oral presentation, knowledge of material, clarity of artwork (charts, graphs, slides), and overall presentation. Again, recorded presentations should be no more than 10 minutes long.
Excellence for a Poster Presentation Awards
Poster presentations will be judged for organization and creativity, organization of content, technical procedures employed (when applicable), recorded oral delivery, knowledge of material, clarity of artwork (charts, graphs, images), appearance of poster, and overall presentation.
