MACC’s Second Annual Student Poster Session will be held on March 3, 2108 at the Annual Environmental Conference (AEC). The poster session is an opportunity to promote and highlight your thesis work or special project to more than 700 attendees at the conference. MACC seeks poster submissions from college undergraduate and graduate students.


Cash awards and certificates will be given for the top three poster presentations. Generously sponsored by Epsilon Associates, Inc., of Maynard, MA, cash prizes will be:

·       $500 for first place;

·       $250 for second place; and

·       $100 for third place.

Winners will be announced at the President’s Reception (the final event of the day).


Poster Submissions

Any student interested in displaying a poster at the AEC must complete the attached submission form. Please limit your abstract to the space provided on the form. If accepted, poster display numbers will be provided to presenters in a follow-up email. Student poster presenters are invited to attend the conference for free. 


Poster Guidelines

 All illustrations and lettering must be prepared beforehand. The poster display is not to be solely the typed manuscript pinned to the poster board.  The display should be arranged in a logical, coherent fashion and must fit a maximum display area of 30 inches wide by 42 inches high. Posters must provide the following information:

• Title;

• Author name(s) and affiliation(s);

• Acknowledgements, including sources of support or funding;

• Background/Introduction;

• Objectives;

• Materials and methods;

• Appropriate visuals including charts, graphs, photographs, etc.;

• Conclusion and discussion; and,

• References, if applicable.

MACC will supply the poster mounting frames and push-pins. Students are responsible for any materials or supplies needed to present the poster. No audiovisual or electrical outlets are provided for poster presentations. Remember: Keep your message concise.
