During the weeklong series of events, student recipients of Undergraduate Research Scholar Awards present their research at a poster exhibition open to the community. Judges from UT Dallas determine who will move on to the finals. The poster contest finals will be held April 27th – in the meantime, enjoy some photos from the event.
