What comes next

We'll review your submission and get it ready for posting online on May 3, 2024. At that point, we'll publicize that the videos are available for viewing. Our judges will evaluate the videos to determine the award winners. You'll be notified if your video receives an award, and select awardees will be invited to present their video in person at the Showcase and attend the Awards Celebration on Thursday, May 9, 2024.

All participants who create a poster are welcome to present it at the in-person Reception on May 9, 2024, at the Frist Campus Center. PRD will print presenters' posters free of charge and the posters will be for presenters to keep afterwards. The Reception is open to students, faculty and staff.

All (students, faculty, staff, family, friends, alumni, and the public) are welcome to attend the Showcase, Reception, and Awards Celebration.
