ADRIAN, Mich – Creativity is once again celebrated on the campus of Adrian College as they announce the third annual Creativity Award contest. This contest is open to all Adrian College faculty, staff and students. Submissions are accepted now through March 1, 2014.
The idea, inaugurated during the State of the College in 2011, was brought forth through a committee spearheaded by President Jeffrey R. Docking. This award would be given to the top idea submitted by an Adrian College student or employee, as evaluated by a selection committee.
Docking said during his address, “the beauty of creativity, as we all know, is its egalitarian nature. Everyone can be creative. It is a human attribute that knows no limitations because of race, religion, age, gender, or creed. It is only limited by each person’s mind.”
“The future of this institution, in my opinion, depends on creativity,” Docking continued, “and our collective ability to devote ourselves individually and as a community to creatively re-imagine, reinvent, enhance, improve and change how Adrian College does everything—from educating students to recruiting talented faculty members to taking care of our grounds.”
The submitter of the winning nomination will receive a $1000 prize. The winning idea will also be funded up to $10,000 to implement on campus. Runners up will each receive a $50 gift card for the Arrington College Bookstore.
Previous winning nominations include a campus bike share program and a mosaic mural near the Caine Student Center.
Submission forms are available at Ritchie, The Caine Student Center, and the Institute for Creativity/Shipman Library. Submissions may also be found online at:http://adrian.edu/academics/institutes/creativity/
