Judges

The Annual Meeting and Winchell Undergraduate Research Symposium gives undergraduate students the opportunity to present their research and receive feedback from professional scientists in their field. Students are evaluated on the quality of their abstract, research, and presentation skills. The exact format of the judging or evaluation varies from year to year but the overarching goal remains the same:  to provide students with the opportunity to present their research to professionals and receive feedback.

Professional scientists can help encourage excellence in undergraduate research by volunteering to give feedback at the symposium. Evaluators read student abstracts, observe student presentations, and submit brief written evaluations and feedback for students. Judges/evaluators must hold an advanced degree (or be a current advanced graduate student) and have research experience.

If you are interested in volunteering to be an evaluator at the 2018 Annual Meeting and Winchell Undergraduate Research Symposium, please contact laramaupin@mnmas.org. 

Planning Commitee members prepare judges for the event.
