Poster Showcase Event Sponsors


Student Success Committee

West’s Student Poster Showcase operates under the auspices of the Student Success Committee, a committee of the Academic Senate. Each year faculty, classified staff, administrators, and student volunteers form a work group to plan and carry out the judging and fair.


This year's event is sponsored by ASO (Associated Student Organization), who have invited faculty judges to participate. If you are a paid ASO member, or if you become one by May 14, you will qualify for one of the three ASO Poster Showcase Prizes ($50 per person Amazon cards) for outstanding posters which demonstrates resourcefulness and creativity. 


In order to become an ASO member, go to the Business Office, 2nd floor of SSB, and pay $7 for the ASO membership fee. You are then entitled to ASO services such as free Scantrons, pens, folders, discounted printing and faxing on campus, and use of the exclusive ASO study lounge, among other benefits. Most importantly, you will qualify for one of the three ASO Poster Showcase Prizes ($50 per person Visa cash cards.)


For more information, phone 310-287-4375, or visit the ASO office in A9 (behind PAWS).
