Welcome to the 2018–2019 Jackier Prize Competition!
What is the Jackier Prize?
Every object has a story to tell about the people who made it and those who used it or gave it value. The Jackier Prize Competition provides an opportunity for U-M undergraduate students to explore and discover the stories behind the objects at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. This competition is open to any undergraduate from any discipline at U-M. The essays (up to five) that best demonstrate excellence in archaeological research will be awarded a cash prize. This prize is made possible by the generous donation of U-M alumnus Lawrence Jackier and his wife Eleanor Jackier.
The Jackier Prize winners for 2019 are: Jacqueline Cope, a third-year student studying history and Latin American and Caribbean studies, with a minor in education; Noa Eaton, a third-year student studying history with a focus on late antiquity and women’s health; Ciara Nolan, a first-year studying political science; and Alexandra Wormley, a third-year student studying psychology and history.
