Student Poster Competition
SCPA 2017 Annual Convention

March 31-April 2, 2017 Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort - Myrtle Beach, SC

The South Carolina Psychological Association is pleased to announce the call for submissions for the Student Poster Competition at its 2017 Annual Convention in Myrtle Beach. Posters will be judged on professionalism and the soundness of their theoretical rationale, method, and conclusions. 1st Place ($75), 2nd Place ($50), and 3rd Place ($25) prizes will be awarded in the graduate and undergraduate categories.

We encourage submissions related to any area in psychology. The proposal submission receipt deadline is 5:00pm, Wednesday, March 1.

Student Posters are in a format that allows for extended discussion of the presentation with the author. They use illustrative materials placed on a poster (maximum 4' x 4') with tables, graphs, and data. Presenters must make sure their posters do not exceed the 4x4 dimensions and will need to bring their own trifold display board and push pins.

*Each student listed as a presenter must register for the Convention.*
