The Blue Sock Award is a peer-nominated award for excellence in EDIT 6190 and EDIT 6200. Students from the final studio course, EDIT 6210, make up the reviewing committee.
This award recognizes those individuals who give selfless service to their classmates in the Studio in the way of extraordinary help and support. It is named in honor of Allen Bullock, a graduate of the IT Department. Besides doing exemplary work in the Studio, Allenâ€™s classmates would constantly tell the faculty, without prompting, how much they appreciated his help and support. Allen always seemed to be there when someone needed help, critical feedback, a word of encouragement, or just someone to listen. Interestingly, Allen never felt he was doing anything out of the ordinary. Awardees, like Allen, should not think their help and support are unusual by their own standards. (Although we hope all Studio participants will aspire to win this award, it is wise to remember: "If you think you deserve it, you probably don't.")
Creative Interaction Awards are determined by the Studio faculty. The award was initiated in the Fall of 2007 with some retroactive awards issued.
The LDT Studio "Instructors' Choice" award is an instructor-led award given out to students whom the instructors feel have designed and developed an exemplary project, something extra special and deserving of recognition, but one that doesn't fit the criteria for other awards. Students who receive this award, like the other awards, are encouraged to cite it on their resume or vita.
