Instructions for Poster Presenters

  1. The poster boards are 60 inches by 36 inches and are best set on their easels with the long side horizontal.
  2. You will be provided with the poster boards and push pins and tape to affix your poster.
  3. Please plan to arrive and register giving yourself sufficient time to set up your poster (15–30 minutes). It is important that you set up your poster prior to the start of the formal program which is at noon.
  4. You will find a tag with a number on it in your registration packet. Please match it with the number on the poster board. Once you have your poster set up, place the tag from your registration packet prominently on your poster. The tag designates your poster as one that will be judged in the competition. Only the posters of visiting (Non-CMU) students will be part of the competition.
  5. Between 4:00 and 4:30 the votes will be compiled and winners will be selected. Everyone will receive a certificate and a Pittsburgh/CMU souvenir.
  6. VERY IMPORTANT: please remove your poster before leaving for the day.
