Student Poster Competition

The best student poster is one of the categories in the All-AAPOR poster contest at the 77th Annual AAPOR Conference, to be held May 11-13, 2022 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago.
To be eligible for the student poster award, 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. Faculty coauthors are permitted on student posters, but the student must be the first and presenting author on the poster. The research must have been substantially completed while the student authors were enrolled in a degree program.

To be eligible for the award, attendees must have their poster abstracts accepted for presentation at the 2022 conference and indicate that they want to participate in the poster contest at the time of accepting their poster presentation. The award committee will consider all posters that relate to the study of public opinion and survey methodology, whether they focus on theory, substantive findings, research methods, including both qualitative and quantitative approaches, and/or statistical techniques used in such research.
A prize of a $100 Amazon gift card will be awarded to the student 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 presenter to successfully and succinctly present the subject matter in the poster session. For each session, a panel of researchers from AAPOR’s membership, drawn from academic, commercial, government, and non-profit sectors, will judge the posters. The winning posters will be announced at the Awards luncheon on Friday of the conference.
Note that posters accepted for presentation must include all information required by the AAPOR Code of Professional Ethics & Practices.
