About the Award

The Graduate Student Poster Award recognizes graduate poster presentations characterized by excellence in research, clarity in presentation, and personal knowledge demonstrated in a discussion with judges at the annual convention.

Five 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. Five 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 30 finalists. These finalists will present their posters during the first poster session of the SPSP Annual Convention and will be interviewed by several secret judges (typically faculty members). On the basis of the judges' scores, five first-place winners and five runners-up will be selected.
