Scholars Day Showcase

Resources and Registration

Scholars Day Showcase Information

BVU's 14th annual Scholars Day will be held on Saturday, April 28, 2018. Scholars Day is a great opportunity to share your best academic paper, laboratory project, piece of art, musical or theatrical performance, literary critique, creative writing, or business plan in a friendly, interactive, and intellectually engaging environment. Presentations are welcome from all disciplines, either as poster presentations or as 15-minute oral presentations. By presenting, you’ll get to enlighten a broad audience, list the accomplishment in your résumé, receive cool souvenirs, and be invited to attend the Recognition Dinner.

Scholars Day Schedule of Events:

  • 12:00: Keynote Speaker - Anderson Auditorium
  • 12:30: Group Photo
  • 12:45 - 2:15: Poster Presentations
  • 2:15 - 3:30: Verbal Presentations

The main prerequisite for your participation in this lively academic event is sponsorship by a member of the BVU faculty/staff. If you've got some exciting scholarly work you would like to share, contact a faculty/staff member soon and discuss your presentation idea. Next, write a title and abstract – i.e., a short paragraph of no more than 200 words that summarizes your presentation — then go to to register and upload your abstract by 4:00 pm on Friday, March 30, 2018 (just after Spring Break). (Note: abstracts will be printed in the Scholars Day program exactly as received, so proofread carefully). Spaces are limited – sign up early!

Those students wishing to create poster presentations or show slides may use the Adobe or Microsoft Publisher poster templates, or the Microsoft PowerPoint templates for slides available on the Scholars Day Showcase website. Poster printing will be free for approved submissions.
