Undergrad Poster Competition

Undergraduates selected to present posters at the annual conference are encouraged to participate in a special poster competition. 

To participate in the competition, indicate that they are an undergraduate student in the Questions section of abstract submission. The office will contact all poster presenters that have indicated they are an undergraduate in mid-April with an invitation to participate in the competition (RSVP will be required). If you are not contacted in mid-April, please contact the office at

When is the competition? The Undergraduate Poster Competition is held on Sunday evening during the conference Opening Reception (7:45-9:30 pm).

What can I win? There will be up to four winners selected by judges circulating amongst the competition posters on Sunday evening. Each winner receives $300 and a certificate.

Do I also present my poster in my assigned Monday-Thursday session? The competition on Sunday evening is IN ADDITION TO your scheduled poster presentation Monday-Thursday. This means you will present your poster two times during the conference (once on Sunday evening and then again on your assigned day Mon, Tues, Wed, or Thurs).
