AIM Student Oral/Poster Presentation Competition
Students - Earn $250 Cash Prizes for Presenting at the AIM!
This competition is open to all undergraduate and graduate students who submit an abstract, register to attend, and present at the ASABE Annual International Meeting (AIM). Outstanding student presentations, in both oral and poster categories, will be awarded in each of the following ASABE technical communities.
Combined Community Awards
Due to their smaller nature, the following communities will be combined.
-Applied Science & Engineering (ASE) and Education, Outreach, & Professional Development (EOPD)
-Energy Systems (ES) and Ergonomics, Safety, & Health (ESH)
Individual Community Awards
-Information Technology, Sensors, & Control Systems (ITSC)
-Machinery Systems (MS)
-Natural Resources & Environmental Systems (NRES)
-Plant, Animal, & Facility Systems (PAFS)
-Processing Systems (PRS)
-The number of awards available to each community is based on the number of student presentations entered into the competition. The chair of the Student Oral/Poster Presentation Competition Committee will determine the number of awards available to each community following the annual AIM abstract submittal deadline.
-The total number of awards given, across all communities, shall not exceed 30. The number of awards given for oral presentations and poster presentations, within each community, shall reflect the percentages of student presentations in each category in any given year.
-Awards will not be separated by student classification - in other words no distinction will be made between undergraduate and graduate student presenters.
-Each award will consist of a cash prize of US$250.00 and a certificate. All winners will be alerted by email and the results published in Inside ASABE after the AIM, and their prize money and certificate mailed to them. Students must be ASABE members, at the time of the AIM, to be eligible for awards.
-All entrants must be registered AIM attendees.
How to Enter
All students submitting an abstract (and in some cases a paper - see below) for presentation at the AIM by the submittal deadline will be contacted to determine if they'd like to be entered in the competition. Students submitting to the following communities must also submit an AIM paper to be eligible for awards: ITSC, PAFS, and PRS. Submittals to all other communities do not have this requirement.
