Thank you to all authors and poster judges, too!
As with all things PAA 2020, the experience continues with submissions still available for viewing and ongoing webinars throughout this year. The poster sessions are no different; the are still available for viewing; and we are now awarding poster winners! During May and June, a panel of thirteen judges reviewed 190 posters submitted for the PAA2020. One to two winners were selected for each session by two to three judges per session. Judges reviewed between 32 to 44 posters. Winners were selected when two or more judges scored a poster at the highest level. Considerations for highest scores met three criteria assessing the quality of the submission. Posters scored at the highest level demonstrated an important question or technical contribution, were innovative in the approach and overall contribution, and were visually appealing and accessible to the viewer. You can visit all of the posters on the Virtual PAA 2020 site. The PAA 2020 co-chairs and PAA staff are grateful to Kate Cagney, Marcy Carlson, Deborah Carr, John Casterline, Emily Hannum, Bob Hummer, Rachel Jones, Hedy Lee, Jennifer Karas Montez, Mary Beth Ofstedal, and Jenny Trinitapoli, who served as judges alongside the co-chairs (Eileen Crimmins and Sara Curran). The biggest shoutout goes to all of the poster authors for their excellent research and timely submissions.
