Student Presentation Awards

In order to help identify outstanding work by SSA student members, the SSA Board initiated the Student Presentation Award. The award will be given for an excellent poster presentation or talk at each Annual Meeting. The award may be given to 0-15% of the presenting students at the meeting, based upon an absolute standard of excellence and criteria developed by the Student Presentation Subcommittee of the Honors Committee. At the time of the presentation each award winner must be registered as a student and also must be a Student Member of SSA in good standing. All student presenters will be considered eligible for the award. Students, to help identify yourself as an eligible student presenter, be sure to check the relevant box on your abstract submission for the Annual Meeting. Questions may be directed to Christopher DuRoss, Chair of the Student Presentation Award Subcommittee <christopherduross [at] utah [dot] gov>.
