main campus, cmu 

this year marks the 11th anniversary of the student showcase! 

the student showcase is a yearly event that celebrates creativity, research, innovation, entrepreneurship, and the artistic performance of cmu students from all of our campuses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

virtual showcase

due to the precautions we are taking to slow the spread of covid-19, the 2020 student showcase will be a virtual student showcase. we are excited to go live in early to mid-may 2020. students can keep up on the latest information on this and learn how to submit their projects to the virtual student showcase by heading to the virtual showcase resources page.

who is eligible to participate in the showcase?

cmu students who are currently working on original projects, or have completed projects since the beginning of summer 2019, are eligible to present at the showcase. projects done independently or in collaboration with peers and/or faculty mentors will also be considered. projects that are prepared as part of a class project are eligible as well. 

how do students apply to be in the showcase?

during the spring semester, the showcase application is available as an app in every student's mavzone portal. because every project must have a faculty sponsor, a faculty member (preferably the faculty mentor for the project) must be named as a sponsor on each application. the sponsor is responsible for advising his/her students on how to design and present the projects that they are sponsoring. they also proof the abstracts before they are submitted as part of the application process. students may have more than one faculty sponsor if appropriate.

this year's applications were due on march 6, 2020.

the student showcase is a chance for students to share their talents and accomplishments with their families, friends and community.

our motto is participate, elevate and inspire!
