Deadline approaching for students to enter poster competition at Governor's Water Conference
Undergraduate and graduate students are invited to submit abstracts on their water-related research to be presented as posters at the 12th annual Governor's Conference on the Future of Water in Kansas. The deadline for submission is 4 p.m. on Nov. 3.
The conference will include sessions on drought/flooding, groundwater issues, water utility challenges, sedimentation, water quality and many other items of interest. Any research that involves water quantity, quality or water education is eligible for the poster competition. In addition to an abstract, students are required to submit a prerecorded lightning presentation on their project/poster. The posters will be displayed the morning of Nov. 16 in the front hallway of the Hilton Garden Inn in Manhattan.
Posters will be evaluated to win the Governor's Outstanding Graduate or Undergraduate Awards. In addition, cash awards will go to the top graduate, undergraduate and two runners-up. The student poster competition is sponsored by the Kansas Water Resources Institute.
Submission requirements include a project abstract, a PDF of the poster and a short video recording of a lightning presentation of the research. Materials must be submitted using the online submission form. Students and faculty advisors can contact the Kansas Center for Agricultural Resources and the Environment at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
