ANNUAL GSFLC POSTER SESSION SUBMISSIONS
Hey Chemistry department,
Do you like sharing your research?  What about eating ice cream?  What about the chance to win some cash just for making a poster?
If you answered yes to any of those questions then I have some good news for you!  On Monday, May 16th from 4pm-6pm the GSFLC will be hosting our annual graduate student poster session.  This event is meant for our department to come together and showcase all of the awesome research that we are doing.  As an extra incentive there will be $50 prizes for the top three posters and $25 prizes for three second place posters to be judged by faculty members from the Chemistry department.  You can even use a poster you presented at a recent conference or one that you plan to present!
If you want to submit a poster please respond to this email with:
1.   Your name
2.   What group you are in
3.   What year you are
4.   Your division
5.   The title of your poster (feel free to change this at a later date)
We will be taking poster submissions until Monday, May 9th at midnight. Please let us know if you have any questions and we look forward to hearing from all of you soon!
Thank you, Margaret Lumley and Trisha Tucholski, GSFLC Representatives.
