Instructions for Poster Presentation
A poster is a vigorous hybrid of a scholarly paper and a museum exhibit. As with a paper, a poster is built around a solid idea. Like an exhibit, a poster is primarily a visual experience. The key to constructing a good poster is to present a strong argument mostly in visual terms.
The poster should include the following: title (including authors and addresses), abstract, introduction, purpose, results, discussion, and conclusion. Lettering should be large and legible. The overall poster size should not exceed 48" X 48". Finally, authors should supply a sufficient backing so the poster will stand upright on a table or easel.
Posters should be displayed from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Student poster competitors should stand by their posters during the judging period (time to be announced in the Meeting Program). Dr. Nick Cheper of East Central University serves as OAS Collegiate Academy Director, and oversees the student poster judging.
