Student Awards

The Hudson/Delaware Chapter (HDC) of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) is pleased to once again sponsor the student research awards. The competition is limited to poster presentations only, with awards for graduate and undergraduate posters. The purpose of these awards is to recognize outstanding young scholars and to encourage active participation in SETAC and the HDC. Up to six cash prizes are offered:


Again for 2018 - Interactive Poster Session - "Rapid Fire"
Undergraduate and Graduate students will be asked to present their posters during a “rapid-fire” session in addition to having a poster at the normal poster social to encourage discussion of research taking place at local colleges and universities.  Each student will orally present their poster (as a PowerPoint slide) from the main screen in a 4 minute time-frame.  It is important to be concise and sell your experiment/poster in the allotted time!  The time limit is strict so careful preparation will be necessary.  The “rapid-fire” session will take place at the beginning of the poster social in the ballroom on the first day of the meeting.

*This short presentation is not meant to be a substitute to your poster presentation. Students will not be required to present in this "Rapid Fire" format but are highly encouraged. Poster prizes will be allocated only to those presenting a poster for display on Wednesday and Thursday during the meeting and at the poster social.
