Details on how to enter, abstract and poster criteria, and deadlines/dates.

This annual Expo provides both graduate and undergraduates with an opportunity to share their research with a larger audience--those not in the same areas of professional interest. The Expo's purpose is to communicate the value of science to a general audience in terms that the public can understand, enabling others to appreciate the significance of one's work to society and to those in other areas of professional interest.

Undergraduate and graduate students advised by a faculty member in the College of Agricultural Sciences are eligible to participate. About $4000 in prize monies will be awarded.
