Judges Needed for Student Posters at the AAS Summer Meeting
Did you know that the number one thing Chambliss judges say to me after judging student posters is how fun and rewarding the experience was? Well, it is! Come join the judging fun at the 230th meeting of the American Astronomical Society — you won’t believe how energizing it is to talk with our very early-career astronomers about their work. Here’s what’s involved:
- You fill out the Chambliss Judge Sign-Up form by 24 April to let me know which days of the meeting you’re available to judge (the sign-up form takes about a minute to complete).
- I schedule you to evaluate no more than about five undergraduate and/or graduate student posters, on no more than two days of the meeting (Monday–Wednesday), and only during the morning coffee breaks and/or evening poster sessions.
- You judge the posters according to defined criteria. This will take a total of about an hour of your time at the meeting.
That’s it! I can promise that our student poster authors will sincerely appreciate your expertise in judging their work, as will I.
For this upcoming competition, I am in particular need of full members to judge; however, if you’re an advanced junior member with all coursework completed and you’re not entering the competition yourself, you may also sign up to judge — we’ll have you judging some of our undergraduate entrants.
