Poster Session Proposal

The Cullowhee Native Plant Conference encourages recipients of a scholarship through the Cullowhee Scholarship Program to create and present posters. Topics should center around native plants, ecological restoration, botany, conservation horticulture, landscape design, etc.

The poster session will occur Thursday, July 16, 2015 from 8:30-9:30 AM. Each participant is expected to be present at their poster to answer questions during this time.

Poster sizes can vary but should conform to typical academic standards. Presenters will need to supply backing support for their posters. Easels will be provided. Tri-fold posters are acceptable.

Students are eligible for the poster contest. Open to current and recent graduates, Winter 2014 or Spring 2015. A prize will be awarded in an undergraduate and graduate category.
