May 3rd Awards Ceremony

This year’s award ceremony was held at Bristol-Myers Squibb in Wallingford. Approximately 120 students, teachers, and family members attended to see their ‘student-winners’ accept their certificates. Posters were on display and students had the opportunity to meet with some of the judges and discuss how they developed the ideas for their posters. The ceremony began by Valerie Pare (Co-chair) welcoming everyone to this event. Jen Boyko (Co-Chair) provided the judges' insight as to what makes a winning poster. Dan Meyers (CT ASA Chapter President) talked about the importance of conveying complex information graphically no matter what field of study the students go on to pursue.
