SIVB Student and Post Doc Oral & Presentation Competitions

SIVB is pleased to announce that the Post Doctoral and Graduate Student Oral Presentation Competitions and Non-Competitive Student Oral Presentations will be held during this year’s meeting. SIVB believes that fostering the growth and professional development of its members to enhance their careers, including students and post docs, is essential to the continuing success of any organization. These competitions are held during the meeting to encourage the development of those members just establishing their careers. The deadlines to apply for the competitions have passed. Finalists will be notified prior to the meeting.  

Non-competitive Student Oral Presentations

Public speaking and presenting research findings are a large part of a scientific career. What better way to become proficient at oral presentations than to practice? If your abstract was not chosen for the competitive session, and you would still like an opportunity to present your research, this is the session for you! This new session will allow speakers to practice their public speaking skills in a relaxed, friendly environment without the pressure of being in a competition. All students, even those that don’t submit an abstract to the oral competition, are welcome to apply to speak at this session. To make this a learning experience for everyone involved, the speaker will receive constructive criticism from other members and students of SIVB by using the same judging rubric from the competitive session. Join us to practice speaking and share your research! If you are interested in participating in this session, contact Moderators Jessica Rupp (jessicarupp@rocketmail.com) and Kerri Neugebauer (kerrin@k-state.edu).
