About the Award

The Undergraduate Student Poster Award recognizes poster presentations characterized by excellence in research, clarity in presentation, and personal knowledge demonstrated in a discussion with judges at the SPSP Annual Convention.

Two award winners will be announced at the Student Awards ceremony on Friday during the SPSP Annual Convention. Winners will receive a $100 honorarium and have their posters prominently displayed, showcasing their research to the SPSP community. Two runners-up will receive a $50 honorarium.

Selection Process

In the first round of judging, reviewers will evaluate posters based on their effectiveness in communicating main finding(s) or conclusions in a simple, easy-to-follow format. In addition, reviewers will provide an in-depth evaluation of both poster content and the accompanying research summary. Scores from this round will be used to select ten poster finalists who will present their posters in the next round. Please note that this year, this process will be conducted online. Details will be forthcoming. On the basis of the judges' scores, two first-place winners and two runners-up will be selected.
