About the Contest

This contest was conceived and organized by the LNF User Committee, with the support from the LNF and the Graduate Community grant from the U-M College of Engineering Graduate Office. The LNF User Committee is a group of LNF lab users who advise and give feedback to the LNF staff from a student/lab user perspective, and to work on ways to improve the lab, promote student camaraderie, stimulate professional interaction among students, and improve the lab community and environment for LNF users.

The prizes are as follows:
First prize: $100
Second prize: $75
Third prize: $50

We are happy to have partnered with ArtsEngine who also grants $100 for the "ArtsEngine Honorary Award" to the entry that demonstrates a mastery of subject matter and artistic impression.
