Each year we recruit judges from across CFAES departments to review the research forum poster submissions. Faculty, postdoctoral scholars, and graduate students volunteer to provide feedback to our poster presenters and judge their submissions. All judges are expected to review assigned posters in advance and attend the in-person poster sessions for their assigned competitions. Each reviewer is typically assigned between 2-7 posters depending on their area and preferences. Please note the dates and locations of presentation sessions for each session below.

Poster scores will be tabulated after the in-person judging to determine the top 3 presenters in each competition category. Award winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on Thursday, March 30 between 1-3pm, to be held at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4H Center in Columbus.

If you would like to participate as a judge, please register at the link below.
