Spring Showcase: April 28,
3 p.m.-6 p.m. in the Warwick Center
Spring EIA High School, Hoggard, Library/Media Center, TBA
The English In Action (EIA) Showcase is held at the end of both the fall and spring semesters and provides a forum for students to display the work they have done throughout the semester in their English courses -- from composition and professional writing to literary theory.
Students work alone or in teams to prepare for and present at the Showcase, creating posters, multimedia displays, and interactive activities that visitors are invited to experience during the two-hour long event.
Judges evaluate the work, and the best projects win awards.
English faculty and staff, students, and the public attend the public event.
Visitors will be treated to light refreshments, and everyone has a chance to win door prizes.
Admission is free.
Something for Everyone
Visitors Will be able to vote for their favorite display, which will put it in the running to win the People’s Choice Award.
The Showcase is an excellent way for local high school and community college students who are interested in writing or literature to gain insight into the types of course work they can expect in a UNCW English class.
The Showcase is also an important networking opportunity for current students, providing insight into what classes to take and what an English degree will do for them once they graduate.
