Student Information

Student posters can be set up between 11:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on October 24, 2019 in the Multipurpose Room, in University Centre.  Please check in at the registration desk upon arrival and we will give you directions as to where you are to set up your poster.  Judging will begin at 1:00 p.m. Sharp!

Each student has been assigned a 4’H X 8’W space on a Poster Board where you will be able to place your research poster (thumb tacks will be provided).  Electronic materials are not allowed and we do not provide electrical hook ups.

Although your poster should be self-explanatory, we encourage you to be available for the whole session so that you can explain your work to the public and answer any questions from the judges or the public.  If, under extenuating circumstances, you are not able to stay with your poster during the whole session, please let us know  in advance.

All research posters will be judged by researchers and faculty members from the university community (and, in some categories, judges may also be from industry and government).   Prizes of $500.00, $300.00 and $200.00 will be awarded to the top three posters in each of the following five categories:  Applied Sciences, Natural Sciences, Health Sciences, Social Sciences/Humanities and Creative Works.  The awards will be announced and presented at 4:00 p.m.

The judges will be evaluating your posters on the following criteria:
