Eligibility: Competition is open to any currently enrolled undergraduate, M.S. or Ph.D. student working on original research that investigates some aspect of southern hardwood forest research (e. g. silviculture, forest protection, forest ecology, forest products, wildlife, etc.).
Deadline: Submissions must be received by 5:00 pm, Wednesday, February 15, 2017. Limit of one entry per student. Posters may be uploaded at http://www.deltacouncil.org/southern-hardwoods.html.
Time: Posters must be set up in the Capps Center by 9:00 am on February 23, 2017 and should remain up until 2:00 pm. Display boards and mounting pins will be provided.
Attendance: Students must be in attendance at the meeting and are expected to be at their poster to answer questions during the poster viewing time on February 23rd from 9:45 to 10:30 am.
Awards: The first place winner receives $250, second place winner receives $150, and the third place winner receives $100. Winners will be announced at the meeting.
Evaluation: Award winners will be selected by consensus of a panel of judges. Evaluations will be based on presentation, content, and impact of the research. Due to the short duration of the SHFRG meeting (8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.) and poster presentation times, posters uploaded and submitted to the website will be judged prior to the meeting. Thus, only fully completed, final versions of posters should be submitted by the deadline. Even though posters will be judged prior to the meeting, students must be in attendance at the meeting to interact with meeting attendees. The SHFRG Steering Committee provides this competition as a venue for students to improve their professional presentation and communication skills and feels it is essential that students be present with their posters.
FORMAT: Poster size should be no greater than 48 in x 48 in.
Each student may submit one poster.
After entering your name, email address, poster title, co-authors, and abstract, please also upload an electronic copy of your poster in PDF or PowerPoint format using the “Upload Poster” block below the abstract block.
