Registration open for 2020 Student Expo
Hundreds of students display their research annually at the Student Expo.

Registration for the 2020 Student Expo is now open.  Although registration will be open through Saturday, Feb. 29, participation will be capped at 850 students this year. Students registered after the cap is reached will be waitlisted.

This year’s Expo will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Thursday, April 9, at the Convocation Center. The annual event attracts approximately 850 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.

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: $150 (1st prize) and $75 (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.

How can I volunteer to serve as a judge? The Student Expo is seeking faculty and staff members to volunteer as judges. Please contact Roxanne Malé-Brune at male-bru@ohio.edu.

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