ASU Symposium Contest Winners Named

February 27, 2013

Stephen Salas, an Angelo State University mass media major, has won the top prize in the 2012 University Symposium Student Contest that is conducted each year in conjunction with ASU’s E. James Holland University Symposium on American Values.

The 2012 symposium was themed “Film and American Values,” and featured nationally known film and theater critic Jeffrey Lyons as the keynote speaker.  The student contest entries were judged on creativity, originality, depth of thought, technical competency and relation to the symposium theme.

Salas won first place and a $250 prize for “Hair – A Silent Music Short.”  Second place awards went to graphic design majors Nicole Clemens and Sean Halstead.  Clemens was awarded $125 for her digital print titled “Wanted,” and Halstead received $125 for his digital print titled “The Dollar Bill.”  Graphic design major Savannah Logsdon received honorable mention for her illustration and original musical score titled “Mike the Mime.”

All the entries will be on public display March 4-8 in the Art Gallery in Room 193 of the Carr Education-Fine Arts Building, 2602 Dena Drive.  An awards ceremony honoring the winners and all student participants will be held Thursday, March 7, from 4-5 p.m. in the Art Gallery.  Both the exhibition and awards ceremony are open free to the public.

Judges for this year’s contest were Department of Visual and Performing Arts faculty members Ben Sum, Dr. Martha Saywell and Dr. Bill Doll.
