As you begin preparing for your poster presentation, keep in mind the following:

  • The size of your poster must be 30" X 40" . (Please note that this is the same poster size as required by the GSC Scholars Forum and Research Week).

  • The poster evaluation sheet is attached so that you may see how the judges will be scoring your presentation and so that you may prepare accordingly. 

  • Do not mount your posters onto a foam or poster board. We will provide the boards for you the day of your presentation. Note that the poster board can be rotated on the easel, so you may prepare the poster in either 'portrait' or 'landscape' orientation.

  • The posters will be affixed to the provided foam board using binder clips, which will be provided.  No push pins allowed.

  • Posters can be printed for free at the Media and Digital Resource Lab on the first floor of the library. Posters can also be printed/laminated for a fee at Engineering Media Services in Shelby.

  • Lamination is optional

  • This is an individual poster presentation. Co-presenters are not allowed. 

  • The use of props is not permitted and their use will result in disqualification from the competition.

Please remember to invite your friends, lab mates, and major professor attend the Showcase! If you have any questions, please email
