4th Annual PCSA Creativity and Microstory Competition

Submissions are being accepted for the 4th Annual PCSA Creativity and Microstory Competition! Combining both science and art into any one individual’s skill set is important because it can help nurture creativity in research and cultivate innovation in the workplace. For this reason, ACerS President’s Council of Student Advisors (PCSA) organizes innovative-artistic initiative in the form of a creativity and microstory competition for students.

The microstory portion of the competition serves to encourage the harmonious coexistence of art and science in the ceramics and glass community. Students who dabble in ceramic and glass-related arts either for their research or just for fun are encouraged to share their talent!

Find out more information about the PCSA Creativity and Microstory Competition and submit your entries by July 31!
