NV Space Grant and NV NASA EPSCoR 2020 Virtual Poster Competition

2020 NV Space Grant and NV NASA EPSCoR Virtual Poster Competition

Step 1 of 2

  • In lieu of presenting at the now postponed Statewide Meeting and to ensure that graduating undergraduate and graduate students have an opportunity to share their research results, NV NASA Programs is sponsoring a virtual poster competition.

    Due Date: May 8, 2020 at 5:00 pm (PT)

    Poster Format and Abstract Guidelines:

    Format: Posters will need to be uploaded as a PDF and need to include the information below.

    Title: Include a banner frame clearly stating the title of the poster, your name, your mentor(s) name, institution, and department. Be sure to include the Nevada NASA Space Grant Consortium logo and the logo of your institution.

    Overview: Clearly articulate what you did, how you did it, why you did it, and what it contributes to your field and the larger field of human knowledge.

    Introduction: Specify the main argument of your study, provide an overview of what you did, the evidence that supports that argument, and point out the significance and value of the research. Be succinct in this one-frame element.

    Method: Illustrate how you conducted your project.

    Results (if applicable): Indicate what your research has revealed.

    Conclusion: Include an explanation of the ways the results satisfy the research objective. Illustrate how your findings impact scholars in your field and members of the broader intellectual community.

    Poster Abstract Preparation Guidelines and Submission: Abstracts should be single-spaced, written in Times New Roman, 12-point font with a maximum word count of 300. Participants must include the project title, authors and institution in the submission headline. The body of the abstract should describe the background and intent of the research, methods, discussion of relevance to NASA missions, and research results. If results are not yet achieved, students may instead summarize future direction. Please note that failure to submit an abstract by the required date will result in disqualification from the competition.

    Video Submission: Please provide a video introduction to your poster. Highlight key results and why people should care about your research so that they will be motivated to view your poster. The video should be brief, approximately 30 seconds.

    Poster Session and Judging: Judges will evaluate posters based on overall poster appearance and technical content (see Poster Evaluation Criteria form for more information, minus responses to questions because this will not be a live event). The top 3 competitors will be awarded a prize.  

    Tokens of appreciation and competitions prizes (top undergraduate and graduate posters) will be mailed to recipients and hence why a physical mailing address is requested.
