Student Research Competitions

More information is posted online!

Contestants must hold membership in the American Meat Science Association at time of entry (February 25, 2019).  Only two students from one university may enter the graduate 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 have up to four total participants.  

DIVISIONAL COMPETITION

Contestants may compete in one of three divisions depending on their eligibility.

  • Undergraduate Division: Contestants competing in this division must be an undergraduate or have received their bachelor’s degree no earlier than the May prior to the competition. Contestants may compete only once in the Undergraduate division.
  • Master of Science Division: Contestants competing in this division must be currently enrolled in a Master of Science Program or have completed a Master of Science program since the last Reciprocal Meat Conference. Contestants may compete only once in the Master of Science division.
  • New 2019 Rules - Doctor of Philosophy Division: Contestants competing in this division must be currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program or have completed a Ph.D. program since the last Reciprocal Meat Conference. Students may compete twice in the Ph.D. level competition if they have not won the Ph.D. division previously and if the research they are presenting the second time is significantly different* from the first time competing. 
    •  * meaning it must be separate experiment/trial (cannot be preliminary results one year and the final project the next year)
