2018 GSD Student Poster and Oral Competition – Arkansas Chapter
Gamma Sigma Delta will sponsor its 19th annual student presentation competition on Friday, March 16, 2018, at the Pauline Whitaker Animal Science Center. Undergraduates, Master’s candidates and doctoral candidates will compete in their respective categories. Complete guidelines are articulated in the GSD Competition Guidelines document available from the download link in the blue box to the right.

First, second and third place winners will be awarded, with students receiving respective awards of $100, $75 and $50 in each category for posters or oral presentations.  If there are not enough applicants in a category, categories may need to be combined for efficient evaluation. Award amouts may vary depending on the number of student participants.

Posters will be available for public viewing from 8:00 am to approximately 12:00 noon on March 16 at the Pauline Whitaker Animal Science Center. Oral presentations will begin at 8:00 am in the classrooms at the Pauline Whitaker Animal Science Center (rooms and exact times will be annouced at a later date).

Students may enter by sending their abstracts no later than February 2, 2018 to Kris Brye (kbrye@uark.edu). Abstracts should be saved as Word documents with a maximum of 250 words (not including title and authors/affiliations) in 12-point Times New Roman font.  Students may compete only in one category – either oral or poster. Therefore, students must indicate their preference at the bottom of the abstract page.

All faculty co-authors on a student presentation or poster must be a paid member, or nominated to become a member of Gamma Sigma Delta, for the student to be eligible to enter in the competition. Students are encouraged to become members of Gamma Sigma Delta as well and should ask their departmental representative for a nomination form.
