Competitions

Poster Presentation Opportunity and Prizes

Did you know that the poster exhibit is one of the more attended sessions at the conference?  Strategically placed where traffic is greatest, the posters provide a different kind of learning and networking space that is enjoyed by conference participants.

We think the CES National Conference is a great place to show your skills in aligning excellent evaluation content with vibrant visual presentation! This is a skill worthy of acknowledgement and we have arranged for two different prizes to recognize the best poster presentation:

  • A panel of judges will review the posters based on merit and a first place prize of $500 will be awarded
  • A People’s Choice vote will result in a prize of $500 for the poster garnering the most votes from conference participants

Submit posters through the online presentation proposal submission link: Submit Presentation Proposal. Deadline for submissions is Friday, 15 December 2017 before 11:59 pm MST. No extensions.
