This year’s award ceremony was held at Bristol-Myers Squibb in Wallingford. Proud parents, siblings and
other relatives attended to see their ‘student-winners’ accept their winning certificates. Laura Mc Sweeney,
professor at Fairfield University, and multiple-year judge, provided the audience with an overview of what
the judges look for in a winning poster. Joann Shapiro, from Bayer, interacted with the students to see what
they learned from this exercise and what can be done to improve this activity.
