CMAS Announces Student Poster Art Scholarship Competition

Wed, October 17, 2012

CMAS is proud to announce the Fourth Annual CMAS Student Poster Art Scholarship Competition. We invite all full-time enrolled undergraduate and graduate students at The University of Texas at Austin to submit a poster design that captures the spirit of the Center for Mexican American Studies. The theme for this year is, "Language in las Americas,"

The CMAS Student Poster Art Scholarship Committee asks that students consdier the following questions in creating their entries: What is the role of language in Mexican American and Latina/o communities in the United States? What is the power of bilingualism and/or Spanglish? How are language and bilingualism essential to excellence in the third millenium?

Scholarship awards will be granted in the amounts of $1000 for First Prize, $750 for Second Prize and $500 for Third Prize. The First Prize winner will receive 10 prints.

Entries can be submitted as original hard copy or digital design. Artists should submit entries in electronic form to Nicole Guidotti-Hernández, CMAS Associate Director, or in hard copy to the CMAS office on the 5th Floor of the West Mall Building. The deadline for submissions is 5:00 p.m. on Monday, November 26, 2012.

For further information, please contact Natasha Saldaña, CMAS Undergraduate Program Coordinator, at (512) 471-2134 or Alberto González, CMAS Administrative Associate, at (512) 471-4557.
