From staff reports | Feb 15, 2016

Registration for the 2016 Ohio University Student Research and Creative Activity Expo will close at 11:59:59 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 28. Students must enroll online at www.ohio.edu/studentexpo to participate. Registration will be capped at 800 presenters.

This year’s Expo will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Thursday, April 14, at the Convocation Center. 

The annual event attracts more than 750 student presenters from dozens of disciplines. More than 2,000 students, faculty, staff, community members and local middle school and high school students attend to learn more about how Ohio University students are engaged in research, scholarship and creative activity.

In addition to registering student participants, the Research Division is seeking faculty and staff who can serve as judges, especially those who can judge science presentations. Judging will occur from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Thursday, April 14. Please email Roxanne Malé-Brune at male-bru@ohio.edu to participate.

The following are frequently asked questions about student participation in the Expo:

Who can participate? Participation is open to all undergraduate, graduate and medical students, as well as postdoctoral fellows, on the Athens and regional campuses.

What can be presented? Posters, exhibits, performances, film screenings and other presentation formats are welcome.

Are students eligible for awards? Awards will be given for the best presentations in each category: $200 (1st prize) and $100 (2nd prize). Categories are limited to no more than 12 presentations and assigned by discipline. For sessions with undergraduate and post-degree students, judges may elect to give two 1st prizes (one each for an undergraduate and a post-degree student). In this case a 2nd place prize will not be awarded. In addition, several sponsors will offer special award categories.

Who sponsors the event? The Student Expo is sponsored by Research Division, Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost, Office of the President and the University Libraries.
