Although it is taking place next semester, now is the time for Cogswellians to prepare for the annual student-produced FUSION AWARDS! This isn’t just any award show. This is a chance for students to put their work up against that of their peers, and gauge their skills. Categories span from traditional art in 2D and sculpture to student produced PC games and audio production and composition. The contest of sorts is open to all levels of undergraduates, so freshman should be prepared to bring out their best and compare with the upperclassmen. Although, with fellow student voting, as well as faculty, sometimes the junior or senior doesn’t always win. With that said, I would like to emphasize that everyone has a chance and getting a coveted dragon egg to display upon their mantle.
The event is sponsored by Cogswell’s Associated Student Body (ASB), and is organized by a student committee comprised of members of the ASB’s Executive Board. This special committee collects work, sets up the voting system, counts votes, and promotes and produces the award ceremony.
Important dates to keep in mind:
-2011 Fusion Awards submission period begins January 28, 2011
-Voting takes place February 7-11, 2011
-2011 Fusion Awards Ceremony takes place on February 25, 2011
Since submissions begin shortly after the return from winter break, Cogswell students are urged to start thinking about what they will be submitting now so they have the break to finesse their entries. This is one of the biggest events of the year! It will definitely be a treat to see what all of these creative minds have been working on.
