Carsey Graduate Student SymposiumonFriday, November 8, 2019, in honor of his memory and as part of the Odum Institute’s 95th anniversary celebration.

But the judges aren’t the only ones who get a vote!

All public attendees will be given two ballots to cast for their favorite project/projects, and the winner of the popular vote will also receive a prize. So make sure to stop by and show your support!
