Welcome to the 2019–2020 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 Eleanor and Lawrence Jackier Prize in Archaeology 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 Ann Arbor, U-M Dearborn, and U-M Flint. The projects that best demonstrate excellence in archaeology will be awarded a cash prize (up to four projects). This prize is made possible by the generous donation of U-M alumnus Lawrence Jackier and his wife Eleanor Jackier.
Jackier Prize winners for 2020 were Rachel Heibel, a second-year majoring in art and design with an intended minor in sustainability; Estrella Salgado, a third-year majoring in history with a minor in museum studies; Anna Southon, a second-year in the LSA honors program planning to major in public policy and minor in environment; Victoria Thede, a third-year double majoring in history and art history; and Jaymes Walker, a sophomore at the STAMPs school of art and design.
