Two Justice majors present at Student Showcase 2011

Heather MacAlpine and Ezekiel Kaufman, Justice majors and research assistants for Justice faculty member Dr. Brad Myrstol, have been selected to make presentations for the 2011 UAA Student Showcase on Thursday, April 7 at the Student Union.

Heather MacAlpine will present "Alaskans' Lands: A Native Alaskan's Perspective"; this paper was originally written for English 214: Persuasive Writing. Ezekiel Kaufman will present "Race-Based Perceptions of Judges," originally developed for Justice 201: Justice Data Analysis.

The UAA Student Showcase Program highlights the extraordinary work of students throughout the University of Alaska Anchorage system. Awards for top papers and projects include publication in the 2011 Student Showcase Journal and a $300 cash prize.

Now in its 27th year, Student Showcase creates an opportunity for dialogue among university and community members. Students submit their best work and an anonymous review is done by a faculty member of the submission discipline. Works receiving the highest marks are presented at the Conference. Distinguished community members are invited to the event to evaluate, critique, and comment on students' works.
