Are you a grad student who submitted a poster abstract through the MS&T’09 Call for Papers earlier this year? If so, you are eligible for the Graduate Student Poster Contest. This contest is open to any graduate student who 1) had his or her poster abstract accepted for MS&T’09, and 2) is actually presenting it during the general poster session on Tuesday morning, Oct. 27. If you meet these requirements, you are invited to enter this contest, organized by the Ceramic Educational Council of The American Ceramic Society.

The contest is open to any materials-related poster topic. Participants must have their poster up and on display by 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 27.

The posters will be judged during the general poster session. Poster authors do not need to be present during judging. Three winners will be selected. Cash prizes of $250, $150, and $100 will be awarded to the first, second, and third place winners, respectively.
