Michigan Tech is celebrating World Water Day 2018 during the week of March 26. The Great Lakes Research Center is sponsoring the World Water Day Poster Competition, using the United Nations World Water Day theme, “Nature-based Solutions for Water.”
Graduate and undergraduate students are invited to participate in the World Water Day Poster Competition, which includes 2 categories of cash awards:
Original Research posters typically represent thesis and research work related to any aspect of water.
Coursework/Informational posters present coursework or literature based research. They can be assigned in a course to individuals or groups of students, or can be entered independently.
Posters in the Original Research category may or may not be relevant to the “Nature-based Solutions for Water” theme of World Water Day, but additional points are awarded to the Coursework/Informational posters if they incorporate the “Nature-based Solutions for Water” theme.
Registration Deadline: Sunday, March 18 by midnight to Carol Asiala (email@example.com)
Judging Sessions with oral presentations: Tuesday, March 27, 12:00 to 2:30 pm in Dow Conference Rooms
Informal discussions with students at poster session: Tuesday, March 27, 2:30-4:00 pm in Dow Lobby Area – Campus side
