There will be a student poster and paper contest for both graduates and undergraduates. Studies completed in the last three years qualify for entry to the student awards. The best paper and poster for each graduate and undergraduate will receive:

  • $1,000 for first place
  • $500 for second place
  • $250 for third place

* If you are giving a talk on your student research from 2020, 2021, or 2022 you will be considered for a student award. If you already received a student prize, a new submission will be required to be considered for an additional prize.

Student registration is only $150.00. Please click here to sign up. The student registration price only applies to active students.

If you would like to receive a comped registration, you can volunteer to help on the planning committee. Please email Eric Struhsacker at
