The Southern Nevada Section
of the American Chemical Society
is proud to announce:
The Annual Undergraduate/Graduate Student
Poster Competition Exposition
Saturday, November 18, 2017
12PM-Lunch and networking & 1PM-Awards Ceremony
at Nevada State College (NSC), Rogers Student Center Ballroom
The Southern Nevada Section of the ACS would like to recognize and award excellent student research in fields related to chemistry. There will be separate poster contests for undergraduate research and graduate research and the top two winners will receive a cash reward. The award amounts will be $400 and $200 for first and second place graduate posters and $200 and $100 for first and second place undergraduate posters. The awards ceremony for top undergraduate and graduate poster presentations will be held in conjunction with the high school art contest.
For both contest categories, a minimum of 5 students will be required to register (and present) for the contest. Registration is required by email by 5 pm Nov. 3. Registration materials include: a photo, brief professional biosketch (limited to 1 paragraph), title of poster, academic mentor, co-authors (if any) and abstract of research to be presented. If either of the poster categories fails to meet the 5 student minimum, the contest for that category will not take place (with notification). Contestants do NOT need to be ACS members to present.
Posters for this contest must reflect research related to the chemical sciences. Students from all science and engineering departments are encouraged to participate if the research has a strong connection to chemistry. There is no restriction on the date the poster was created. The poster size must be within 4ft x 6ft (otherwise no restriction on size)
If you would like to register, or if you have any questions, please contact Dr. Amber Howerton at Amber.Howerton@nsc.edu (702) 992-2642 or Dr. Zachary Woydziak at Zachary.Woydziak@nsc.edu (702) 992-2656.
