II. Student Poster Awards and the Tursky Award
These are awards presented to students who are first authors on a poster. Up to 15 Student Poster Awards will be made, each accompanied by a $300 cash prize. Among these winners, up to 3 of those judged to present the very best posters will win a Tursky Award. The Tursky Award comes with a plaque, and the cash prize increases to $500.
Good luck to everyone who will be submitting a poster!

from revelers last year suggested this was a grand time, and with a name like
