After much consideration GSK and ADHA have decided to move the Undergraduate Student Research Competition Virtually. This decision was made based on the responses that were received informing us of the travel bans that are in place for many of the participating dental programs.
The deadline to submit for this competition will remain Friday, April 16, 2021. There are two categories that students can present a virtual poster for in the competition: Research (original research) or Informative (non-original research).
For each judged category, awards will be given to first, second and third place winners. These winners will receive a certificate along with a cash prize and matching monetary grant for their school. An Honorable Mention Certificate is also awarded to those who place in forth place.
Virtual Research Poster (Original Research) – The Research Poster Presentations give students the opportunity to show off the original research that they have done during their undergraduate career. This is a competition and will be both judged and scored. First, second and third place will be awarded, in addition to an honorable mention. For more details, click here.
Virtual Informative Poster (Non-Original Research) – The Informative Poster Presentation gives students the opportunity to raise awareness about a theory, service or trend in dental hygiene practice. This is a competition and will be both judged and scored. First, second and third place will be awarded, in addition to an honorable mention. For more details, click here.
In addition to participating in the Virtual Competition, each student presenter will be able to:
Showcase your hard work in the Virtual Viewing of Poster Presentations alongside fellow students.
