This year, ADHA is also pleased to host this year’s Undergraduate Student Research Competition! All undergraduate dental hygiene students are eligible to present a poster in this year’s competition. There are two categories that students can present a poster for in the competition: Research Poster Presentation (original research) or Informative Poster Presentation (non-original research). The deadline to submit for this competition is Friday, April 16, 2021. For each judged category, awards will be given to first, second, and third place winners. These winners will receive an award along with a cash prize and matching monetary grant for their school. An Honorable Mention certificate is also awarded to those who place in fourth.

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.
