2010 Student Award Winners

The SSA Student Presentation Awards recognize excellence in student poster presentations or talks at the annual meeting. This year the award is given to up to 15% of the number of students presenting at the annual meeting whose presentations meet absolute criteria that cover the quality of both content and presentation. The 2010 SSA Student Presentation Awards were given based on evaluation by the Student Award subcommittee, made up of Thomas Pratt (chair), Elizabeth Barnett, Chris Cramer, Lee Liberty, Morgan Moschetti, Justin Rubenstein, Lara Wagner, Ray Willeman, and Lorraine Wolf. From among a total of about 80 student presentations at the 2010 SSA Annual Meeting, the subcommittee chose the following 12 for recognition:
