Outstanding Poster Presentation Awards

Poster presentations are an important and valued part of the CSTE Annual Conference. CSTE recognizes poster presenters with awards for each CSTE steering committee.
Nomination Guidelines
Only accepted poster presentations at the CSTE Annual Conference are eligible. Nominations are made by members of the Planning Committee, comprised of steering committee leaders and selected members of subcommittees related to the content of posters. Nominations are then scored and winners are chosen by a review committee. Only one poster per presenter may be considered. Criteria for selection include:
  • Scientific content, including originality, study design, and analysis
  • Public health impact
  • Exemplifies the effective and innovative application of epidemiologic methods in an investigation or study
Review

The nomination and finalists selection period is from January through March each year before the conference. A review committee of CSTE members and staff use a scoring sheet and select winners.

Of those abstracts that met the criteria, up to five finalists in each area may be chosen by the review committee. Finalists are announced May 1, and their posters are shown at the Annual Conference. The review committee scores finalists during the conference using a score sheet based on the aforementioned criteria.
