HCC Hawk Run Health and Wellness Poster Contest 2021
Poster Session Contest is an excellent opportunity for students to gain experience presenting a poster in a professional setting.
About this Event

The HCC Hawk Run 2021 Student Poster Session Contest is an excellent opportunity for students to participate in the HCC Hawk Run Health & Wellness Fair and showcase their thoughts, research and presentation skills in promoting health and wellness. In addition, presenting in a formal poster session can greatly enhance a student’s academic resume (CV). The major goal of the poster session is to promote health awareness through research based presentations. The poster presentation aims to generate active discussions related to the research topic. Each student participant can present one poster.

  • Participants will sign-up for a specific 15-minute presentation time.
  • The participant must be present during the time slot to explain his or her poster and be prepared to answer questions from the audience.
  • The poster session presentation will take place before the run/walk portion of the event so that students can participate in both events if they choose.
  • Students have the option of two different categories of posters to present.
  • The Poster Session will be open throughout the entire run/walk and health fair event for race participants to view. We encourage participants to be available before and after their presentation to discuss their poster with race participants.
  • A selection of posters will be displayed in the HCC Brandon Science Department after the event.
  • The results of the Contest will be announced at the Hawk Run Awards Ceremony starting at approximately 8:00 pm on the evening of the event.
