Poster presenters have a specific time to discuss their projects and answer questions. Posters are an excellent way to present new ideas, concepts, and programs.

Submit a proposal for a rapid-fire presentation utilizing the Annual Conference theme. You’ll need to think outside of the box to fit your story into this small presentation package!

Submissions due: 3PM April 6, 2018

Student Oral Presentation
The Student Research Presentation Session is devoted exclusively to research findings presented by undergraduate and/or graduate students and is intended to encourage discussion and facilitate the exchange of current, research-based information pertaining to public horticulture. It also provides an opportunity for students at universities and public horticulture institutions to gain public speaking experience in a professional environment, and presents a forum in which existing professionals may meet their rising peers.
