Congratulations to the 2015 Creativity in the Arts and Sciences Event award winners from the College of the Arts

Congratulations to all of the College of the Arts students who received awards at the 2015 Creativity in the Arts and Sciences Event (CASE) held Jan. 31, 2015 at UF. Presented by the UF Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Science for Life Program and the College of the Arts, the 2015 CASE featured science research posters, 2-D/3-D art exhibits, film, and dance/music/theatre performances. More than 130 students from 10 UF colleges and approximately 46 different departments and disciplinary programs as well as students from Emory University and Louisiana State University competed for prizes in three categories: science, art, and science/art collaboration.

UF faculty, UF administrators and experts from the community served as judges for the event. Students in the science competition participated in peer-judging of science posters as part of the competition. More than $10,000 was awarded to further students’ academic pursuits. Here are this year's award winners:
