On April 12, 2019, CEW&T hosted its 6th annual Women’s Research Poster Competition. Participants had the opportunity to present a poster about their research, receive feedback from judges, network with other women researchers, and compete for prizes.
Of the 77 poster entries, seven earned 1st-place and six earned 2nd-place awards chosen in 5 categories. Each category offered awards for both graduate and undergraduate students. Sixty-five members of the IU Community (faculty, staff, graduate students, and postdocs) served as judges.
Additionally, members of the public and the IU community were invited to vote for a People’s Choice award winner.
