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 2019 were 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.
