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:

  • Best Poster Session Award (judged): A $500 prize will be awarded by the Government of Canada through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) for the poster that will be selected by four judges during the poster session. The award winner will be announced during the Awards Luncheon.

  • People’s Choice Award: A $500 prize will be awarded by TD Insurance for the poster garnering the most votes from conference participants. The People’s Choice voting will occur during the conference and will end on Monday Tuesday, May 28. The award winner will be announced during the Awards Luncheon.
