Andrew Young School students , you are invited to showcase the research or project work you have completed this academic year at a poster session called the AYS Public Service & Research End Event. It is a festive occasion for AYS undergraduate and graduate students to showcase work conducted in internships, capstones, courses, independent research and student activities. The event is held on the 7th floor of the AYS building and includes a competition juried by faculty to identify outstanding student work. **Award winners will receive Kindle readers.** Students can present independent or group project work.
The event will take place on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 from 6:00pm-8:00pm. All AYS faculty, students, external clients and prospective students are invited to attend the event which includes light food and refreshments. This is a celebratory event intended to highlight the challenging and important work that Andrew Young School students perform in service to public and nonprofit organizations and the academic community.
I hope that you will consider creating a poster to share your work from the summer 2012, fall 2012 or spring 2013 semesters. I’m attaching poster guidelines that you must follow to participate. The guidelines include information about how to create a poster using a PowerPoint template and deadlines for submitting your poster for **free printing**.
