Arkansas State's Create @ State Award Winners


InfoReady is very proud to help support student research creative development at Arkansas State University. Create @ State is a year-long program that "provides our traditional and online students with opportunities to become engaged in faculty mentored research and creativity with industry, community, and alumni for student learning and community building."

The program culminates each year with the Create @ State Symposium to showcase the co-curricular research, scholarly, and creative works of Arkansas State students in a professional setting, with judges being those from industry, stakeholders, alumni, community leaders, and administration. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the symposium had to be moved to a virtual format; however, thanks to the collective efforts of the A-State community, the Create @ State program was still able to share and celebrate a year's worth of student success! Ms. Devereux described the situation and the process of making it an inclusive virtual experience in an article for ASPA.

During a Peer Spotlight webinar last year, Ms. Devereux discussed how A-State uses InfoReady Review to help manage student research programs, including Create @ State.

InfoReady is happy to have endowed two different awards for Create @ State: "Best Business Pitch" in the Neil Griffin College of Business and "Undergraduate Creative Media" award in the College of Liberal Arts and Communication. This year our very own Carlos Moncada, Director of Client Services, was invited to participate as a judge.
