2014 Student Poster Event

Sponsored by:  

The Arizona Geological Society held its second annual Doug Shakel Memorial Student Poster Meeting on Thursday April 24, 2014 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe.   Student turnout was excellent from all three state universities. Not only did undergraduates participate as well as graduate students, but they also won two of the top three prizes.

Jason Mizer of the U of A won first prize, Lily Jackson of the U of A won second prize and Crystylynda Fudge of ASU won third prize.  Honorable mentions were awarded to Ada Rosa Dominguez of the U of A, Meghan Guild of ASU and Daniel Hadley of NAU.

It is no exaggeration to say that all the posters and oral presentations were of excellent quality. The proof of this is that the judges, who took their job very seriously, haggled over the winners for an hour, although they had PDFs of most of the posters days before the event.
