Northwestern Perspectives

This year's theme is Northwestern Perspectives. Our institution has changed significantly in the past year, and we encourage you to pause and consider the view from here.

The word "northwestern" implies an entrepreneurial spirit forged by a combination of a resource economy and its challenges, remote communities, long winters, and ruggedly beautiful landscapes. As Northwesterners, our worldview is inevitably shaped by all those factors.

For this year's conference, we challenge you to submit a project that demonstrates, celebrates, or critically examines a northwestern perspective.
