The latest Chambliss Astronomy Achievement Student Award poster competition was a success, and we at the AAS are excited to announce the winners of the competition! The following winners presented their posters at our 243rd AAS meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, in January 2024. This year's contestants faced a majorly revised selection process, which I will write up soon in a news post for the AAS community, so please give these students extra congratulations. If you haven't yet had a chance to judge posters for the Chambliss poster competition, please volunteer in the future! Your next opportunity will be at the 244th AAS meeting in Madison, Wisconsin, in June 2024.
