Jackier Prize

Welcome to the 2018–2019 Jackier Prize Competition!

2017–2018 Jackier Prize winners Madeline Jacobson, Isabel Grace, and Dilyn Grabell posing with donors Larry and Eleanor Jackier.

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.
