The Council on Undergraduate Research is proud to recognize the institutions which will be represented at this year’s 18th Annual Posters on the Hill. As the undergraduate research community works to ensure that those in the U.S. Congress have a clear understanding of the research and education programs they fund, nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of undergraduate research than a student participant’s words, work, and stories. Hosted on April 29, 2014, CUR will invite representatives from federal funding agencies, members of Congress, and Congressional staff to attend the evening poster session.
Congratulations to the following institutions:

Research Poster Preparation and Presentation
This workshop first emphasizes the importance of communicating research results for research or creative work projects. Benefits of an effective poster presentation are listed and discussed followed by detailed guidelines on the layout, content, format, and appearance of the posters to maximize interaction with the audience. Examples of both poor and effective art works and written materials are presented and their points of contrast are highlighted. Important considerations during the poster presentation session are also discussed.
