Competition placement will be based on a comparison of comments from at least 2 judges. As a result, the judges will spend time talking to the presenters, asking questions and listening their description of project and contributions. The judges will be aware that the projects being presented may not have been completed at the time of competition. Accordingly, physical demonstrations will not be a component of judging.

The selection of the winning presentations will be based on:

  • Clarity of poster and oral presentations

  • Quality of Methodological Approach

  • Overall responses to the judges’ questions

  • Completeness of work

Suggested Best Practices

For all posters, please follow these guidelines:

  • Maintain a good contrast between background and foreground text.

  • Avoid acronyms and extensive mathematical notation as much as possible.

  • Include one or more of the following: a short description of the problem, objectives of the work, the methodology utilized, conclusions, relevant diagrams, graphs and charts in order to present an overview for the application.

  • Organize your poster into sections, e.g., Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, and Literature Cited. (Avoid using too many citations.) You may wish to use numbers to help sequence sections of the poster.

  • Arrange the material into columns.

  • The title should be readable from 15 – 20 feet (approximately 4.5-6 meters) away.

  • The text should be large enough to be read easily from at least 6 feet (approximately 2 meters) away.

  • The poster should not rely upon your verbal explanation to link together the various portions.

  • Avoid densely packed, high word-count posters. Posters with 800 words or less are ideal.

  • Self-explanatory graphics should dominate the poster
