Judges Needed for Texas Tech Poster Competition

Faculty, staff, graduate students and community members from Lubbock and the surrounding areas can act as judges.

Judges are needed for the 15th annual Graduate School Poster Competition at Texas Tech University, an event designed to help graduate students present their research to a non-specialized, lay audience.

The primary purpose of this competition is to offer students an opportunity to explain their research to a general audience; therefore, judges from the community are especially welcome. Judges will be given all the information needed on the day of the conference. Lunch will be provided.

“We’re excited about showcasing the research our graduate students are doing and the opportunity for participants to talk about their research with members of the community,” event co-coordinator Jeannie Bennett said.

The poster competition will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 25 at the Helen DeVitt Jones Sculpture Court at the Museum of Texas Tech University, 3301 4th St. People interested in being judges can register online.
