You can create your poster electronically and email it to us
you can do it in pen and/or printouts on a 24”x36” poster paper and send us a photo of it from your smartphone.
The Student Posters will be visited by the attendees to the NASPAA conference. It is therefore important that your poster is clear, concise and well laid out for maximum impact. You may include graphics or charts, but be sure your poster can tell a story for the reader in 1-2 minutes. The poster can be based on any level of graduate student research: term paper, capstone project, master’s thesis, or doctoral dissertation.
Students from all NASPAA schools anywhere in the world are eligible to submit posters
. Faculty are encouraged to submit posters as well, but they are not eligible for the competition. See
