Judges needed for Undergraduate Exhibition on April 6

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Faculty and graduate student volunteers are needed to serve as poster judges for the Undergraduate Exhibition on April 6. Judges play a vital role in the success of this event, which this year includes nearly 250 posters and 350 student presenters. Volunteers are being sought in six broad areas of poster entry: arts and humanities; engineering; health and life sciences; physical sciences, social and behavioral sciences; and course-based projects (all disciplines).

Poster judging will be held in the HUB-Robeson Center on April 6. Judges choose the times and area(s) of entry for judging. Each judging session spans a 90-minute period (9:30-11 a.m.; 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.; 12:30-2 p.m.) in which each judge is given approximately three posters to review. Most judges find that a total of about 45 minutes is required to complete the judging. A judge need not stay the entire 90 minutes. The students will be available through the 90-minute session.

Information about the Undergraduate Exhibition can be found at undergradresearch.psu.edu.

Faculty and graduate students willing to serve as judges should complete and submit the online judge volunteer form. The Office of Undergraduate Education will confirm by email that the judge volunteer form was received successfully.

Questions may be directed to Mary Beth Crowe, assistant vice president and assistant dean for Undergraduate Education, 814-863-1864 or mbc5@psu.edu.

The Undergraduate Exhibition is presented by Penn State Undergraduate Education. Learn more about Undergraduate Education at undergrad.psu.edu.
