Up to 10 of these presentations may be selected to forward to the 28th Annual California State University Student Research Competition. This rubric will be used to score the presentations.
 
Poster Presentation Instructions: Posters should be a maximum of 6’ wide by 4’ tall, and will be placed on easels in the viewing areas. Posters can be printed on a single sheet of paper in the Student Tech Center.

This rubric will be used to score the poster presentations for those electing to be judged.
