BYU students feature products, businesses in Creator_ Showcase


Hundreds of BYU students came to the Garden Center in the Wilkinson Center to see the products being displayed. From homemade soap to photography, and custom stickers to jackets, the dozens of products allows students to show off their creativity.

D.J.Taylor, manager of the Slab space in the Tanner building, said “The purpose of the Creator showcase was to really showcase what these students have been working on.” Taylor said the Creator_ Showcase planning team has been working for weeks to prepare for the showcase.

“Lots of people, I couldn’t name everybody,” Taylor said, “and I want to, but they’re all amazing, they’ve all been working so hard.”

Many of the booths had snacks or small gifts that interested students could take, along with a free dirty soda bar and gelato stand.

Rachel Perry, owner of R Wittwer Photography, took free professional headshots for interested students. She said that she has “done expos and shows before, so I had a lot of the content and materials already.”

Perry filled out a Google form to participate with the showcase, and said that she liked the set-up in the Garden Court. She said, “It’s nice that it was in such a public place, just that all of BYU campus could come and see everyone.”

After the public demonstration, teams of students met in the varsity theater to pitch their products to a team of judges. Three winning teams in software, service and products won $7,500 to use in their future businesses.

“People are so creative and can do so many other things,” Perry said, “and you see that here especially.
