Tech students!
Do you make Things?
Are you making a Thing?
Have you considered making a Thing?

Submit your Thing to the Great Maker Show!

The Great Maker Show is a show for made things from all variety of techniques, perspectives, and materials....glass, ceramic, cardboard, plastic, digital, fabric, paper and pencil, shape-memory polymer, glue sticks, or old socks.
You tell us what it's made of!
It's your thing!

Things may be functional, beautiful, works in progress, demonstrative of a particular process (a prototype or proof of concept), and all the places in between.

Did you build a cardboard replica of the Hagia Sophia?
Did you write a 5-minute one-act, one-man play?
Did you resin cast a robotic arm and control it with a microprocessor?
Did you craft a musical composition?
Did you make a giant pancake in the bed of a truck?

Submit it!

Selections for the Great Maker Show will be reviewed and selected by a panel of judges, made up of local entrepreneurial makers:
Joshua Mitchell, Director/Organizer of Ruston Makers Fair and Owner of Jodami Design
Lauren Hoffman Jennings, Market Manager for Ruston Farmers Market and Co-Owner at Jennings Apiaries
Amanda Barker McCoy, Showroom Manager at Southern Pipe and Supply Co. and La Tech Alum in Interior Design
and Justin Hinckley, distinguished Tech alumnus!

Winners will be selected based on craft, novelty, the use of unexpected materials or processes, quirk, and concept.

Submissions are due March 31st, to entries.greatmakershow@gmail.com.
ALL INFORMATION FOR SUBMISSION MAY BE FOUND AT:
latechinnovation.org/makermonth/

Please send any questions you may have to Kyle Prather at kprather@latech.edu or Hannah Bustamante at hannahb@latech.edu.
