Student Poster Award

The third Annual Student Poster Competition honors the best student poster presented at the AAPOR annual conference. 

To be eligible for the award, students must have their poster abstracts accepted for presentation at the conference. The award committee will consider all posters that relate to the study of public opinion, whether they focus on theory, substantative findings, research methods, and/or statistical techniques used in such research.   

A single prize of $100 will be awarded to the poster judged the “best” overall based on the content of the poster, the quality of the visual display of information on the poster, and the ability of the student to successfully and succinctly present the subject matter in the poster. A panel of public opinion researchers from AAPOR’s membership, drawn from academic, commercial, government, and non-profit sectors, will judge the posters. The winning poster will be announced at the conference.

Poster presenters must be current students (graduate or undergraduate) at the time of the abstract submission, or must have received their degree during the preceding academic year. The research must have been substantially completed while all authors were enrolled in a degree program.
 
Students interested in having their posters considered for the 2017 Student Poster Competition must:
  • Have submitted an abstract of their poster to the 2017 Conference,
  • Indicate they would like to be considered for the poster competition during the submission process.
Note that posters accepted for presentation must include all information required by the AAPOR Code of Professional Ethics & Practices.
