Student Showcase plan

Posted on Jul 29, 2015 by Amy Roberts Last Activity on Jul 29, 2015

I wanted to share a basic look at our Student Showcase that we hold each year.  We call it the Media MashUP and it is pretty simple to put together.  I have my graphic arts students create posters and programs to promote the event.  I use Google Docs to keep create an entry form. Students submit their work as a link on Youtube - so I don't have to deal with any files until I am getting ready for the award show night.  I have my Animation students create show opens and animation interstitials for the award show (ie: AND THE WINNER IS!) We rent a red carpet, have T-shirts made(graphic design students work) and have our photography students do red carpet photos.  I hold the event in our auditorium in Spring on the last Friday night of classes. I have 2 senior student act as hosts.  It's a great way to end the year.  Here is the link for my entry form: Our Facebook page with photos fro... Read More
