Do not miss out on the opportunity to present a poster at MS&T! Submit an abstract of no more than 100 words, along with your name, title of poster and the name of your university by Monday, September 24, 2018 to Yolanda Natividad.
The poster entered must be the work of an undergraduate and completed during the undergraduate education of the student.

First, second and third places will be given in the amounts of $250, $150, and $100 respectively. All students are eligible to enter the poster contest. The winners will be announced at the student awards ceremony at MS&T.
