Student Poster Competitions
Each year, the NCWRA cosponsors a student poster presentation competition with the NC Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI) at their annual conference
. Both graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to enter the competition when they register. Cash awards go to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place poster winners as well as to honorable mentions. The first place winner also receives complementary full registration for the upcoming year's AWRA Annual Conference.
