Writing Showcase 2022

Welcome to the UWP Writing Showcase 2022!

The Writing Showcase gives students an opportunity to share their research and scholarship with fellow BGSU students and faculty and provides the prospect to win a cash prize for outstanding scholarship.

The Showcase will be hybrid this year, with in-person poster presentations (digital or traditional) and online presentations hosted on the UWP Website.

In-Person poster presentation will be April 8, 4:45-6:00 p.m. in East Hall.

Virtual, pre-recorded presentation will be live on the UWP Showcase page and streamed in East Hall on April 8.

Come out and see the great research from our WRIT 1110 and WRIT 1120 students!

Information for Presenters

Students will share their information in poster presentations, which are short summaries of your research.

In-person Presentation Format: Poster presentations give you a chance to talk with others about your research in conversations instead of presenting one at a time in front of a large crowd. Think of the poster presentation as a conversation starter.

Virtual Pre-Recorded Presentation Format: Virtual presenters will record a short, 5-7 minute video of their research. They may use the digital poster format to help guide viewers through their research, but they may also use other presentation formats that help them present effectively. Pre-recorded presentations should be submitted to the UWP by April 4 to give time to upload. Send your recorded presentations to uwp-studentevents@bgsu.edu.

Lacie Snyder: "Saving the System: Bringing Back Hope to Mental Health in America"

My name is Lacie Snyder, and I am a current freshman at Bowling Green State University. I am a HDFS Major with a double minor in Psychology and Child Life. I love being with my friends and my cat, Spartacus. After College, I plan to become a Child Life Specialist or a Child and Family Therapist. I became interested in the topic of our failing mental health system through the Curiosity Paper I wrote in my WRIT 1120 class. As someone who struggles with mental illness day after day, I would love to help towards the solution of healing our broken system.
