Student Research Poster Competition

Students if you would like to engage in high quality, sound and pertinent meat research and develop your skills in effective communication for dissemination of research information then make sure you sign up to participate in the 2017 RMC Student Research Poster Competition.

For all students in the research competition an electronic poster board will be provided.  Presenters will be asked to submit their poster in advance as your poster sessions will be done in Kiosk Mode. Kiosk mode means that we receive the presentation ahead of time, then combine multiple presentations into a single presentation with a menu and navigation buttons. This ensures that it’s easy to swap between different posters that are on the same screen. More information will be sent out in April regarding the design of your poster.

Contestants must hold membership in the American Meat Science Association at time of entry (February 1, 2017).  Only two students from one university may enter the graduate (MS or PhD) competition, regardless of the division in which they will compete. In addition, two students from one university may enter the undergraduate competition.  Each university can up to four total participants in the research competition.   However students can only participate in each division one time.

More information is posted online!
