176 ACS 528 - Diversity in Agronomy, Crops, Soils and Environmental Sciences Student Poster Competition

Poster Session
Special Sessions One of the main objectives of the Diversity in Agronomy, Crops, Soils and Environmental Sciences Committee, previously known as Minorities in Agronomy Committee (ACS 528), which was established more than a decade ago, is to encourage involvement and participation by minority students and professionals in the Tri-Societiesí programs and activities. To meet the committee's objectives, all students that identify themselves as ethnically diverse are encouraged to participate in annual meetings of the Tri-Societies through poster abstract submissions for general sessions across divisions in the Tri-Societies and in the Minority Student Poster Competition. Minority student participation in this competition requires successful submission of poster abstracts to respective division(s) of the Tri-Societies; and a copy of the submitted abstract, name of authors and division to be emailed to the Diversity Committee chair or designate for inclusion in the minority student poster competition upon submission. The Minority Student Poster Competition is one of the important activities of the Diversity Committee (ACS 528) during the Annual meetings of the Tri-Societies. For the 2012 annual meetings at Cincinnati (OH), completed posters must be received by the Diversity Committee not later than September 18, 2012. Evaluation and selection of the winners will be done prior to the Diversity Committee Annual Meeting. The awards ceremony for the participants and top three winners in the poster competition will be done during the Diversity Committee Annual Meeting on October 22, 2012. Three winners will be awarded cash prizes of $300 (1st prize), $250 (2nd prize) and $200 (3rd prize). All participants will receive Certificates of Appreciation.
