Student Presentation Awards

2014 Winners

The SSA Student Presentation Awards recognize excellence in student poster presentations or talks at the annual meeting. 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 2014 SSA Student Presentation Awards were given based on evaluation by the Student Award subcommittee, chaired by Chris DuRoss (Utah Geological Survey) and including Kris Pankow, Noel Barstow, Katsuichiro Goda, and Ryan Gold, who were assisted by dozens of evaluators among the conference attendees. From among a total of 138 student presentations evaluated at the 2014 SSA Annual Meeting in Anchorage, Alaska, the subcommittee chose the following 12 for recognition:
