Record Number of Applicants in SSCP Student Poster Competition

SSCP holds a student poster competition at each annual meeting of the Association for Psychological Science.  We had a record number of 84 posters in Chicago this year, about a 60% increase over previous years!  Because of the increased number of submissions and because the quality of the posters was uniformly high, we added two extra judges and increased the total amount of money awarded from $1000 to $1500.
The judges for this years competition were Marc Atkins, Michelle Craske (President-Elect of SSCP), Lea Dougherty (Editor of Clinical Science, the SSCP Newsletter), Elizabeth Hayden (Past Secretary/Treasurer of SSCP), Dave Smith (Current Secretary/Treasurer of SSCP), and myself.  Two winners ($200) and 11 “Distinguished Contributions” ($100) were identified.  The monetary prize is awarded to the first author of the poster. All student authors on an award-winning poster also receive a complimentary one-year membership in APS – Thank you Alan Kraut and APS!
