15th Annual Graduate Research Poster Competition

Friday, March 25th, the Texas Tech Graduate School held the 15th Annual Graduate Research Poster Competition the Helen DeVitt Jones Sculpture Court at the Museum of Texas Tech University. This competition is a chance for students to present their research before they represent Texas Tech at both national and international research conferences. The students presented research in many diverse fields including; psychology, education, engineering, human and agricultural sciences as well as many other disciplines. They were to answer questions regarding their research to members of the university as well as the Lubbock community.

There were a record number of over 230 poster entries this year with 150 being selected for judging. From the selected posters, the Poster Competition Award Recipients were announced on Wednesday, April 6th, at the Graduate Student Award Ceremony in the Helen DeVitt Jones Sculpture Court at the Museum of Texas Tech University.

We would like to express our appreciation to the Museum of Texas Tech for hosting this year's poster session and Awards Ceremony.
