Special Award Categories

We are pleased to announce a number of new poster prizes. In addition to competing in your primary abstract category, you may also opt into any of the special award categories by completing the questions below. Opting into any of the following special award categories means that your poster may be reviewed by additional panels of judges. You will receive further information from the sponsor of each category for which you qualify.
Community-based participatory research is research on significant social issues in collaboration with local residents that will provide potential solutions and contribute to long-term, sustainable change in the community.
Research topics that could qualify for this award include societal challenges in education, criminal justice, employment, housing, voting rights, healthcare, immigration, religious freedom, etc.
Research that might qualify for these prizes include innovations or technologies that could serve as the basis for new products or startups and that provide a benefit to customers in the marketplace. Participants who wish to compete in this category must provide a short statement as part of their poster that outlines the value and identifies the people who could benefit from their technology.
Projects in this category should contain some component of research that focuses on gender and women’s issues. These projects should have a long-term goal of advancing gender equality or the cause of women and girls.
Under “Sustainable Development,” access to clean air and water, renewable energy, health care, education, and economic opportunities is expanded on an open and equitable basis. Research that discovers new ways to conserve water and energy or to deliver health care or education more equitably and efficiently has potentially profound implications for sustainable development.
