Competition for the best scientific poster and for best original artwork focusing on sustainability and climate change. Entries can be made by individual MC students or pairs. There will be three $100 prizes awarded:

(1) Judge’s Choice for Best Scientific Poster (selected by MC science faculty)

(2) Judge’s Choice for Best Original Artwork that includes a short statement of the artwork’s meaning and significance (selected by MC art faculty)

(3) People’s Choice (selected by public vote).

Posters will be judged based on the thoroughness and accuracy of the information, and the quality of references (peer-reviewed sources preferred), language (i.e. grammar, punctuation, etc), and visuals (images, charts, etc).  

Work must be original-no plagiarism will be allowed.
Original artwork will be judged based on demonstration of effort, time spent and attention to both form and content (i.e. material manipulation/craftsmanship and concept/meaning such as the connection to sustainability), submission should include a short statement describing the artwork and your intention (maximum length 500 words), artwork should have been created within the last three years.  All mediums accepted.
