The Mary Elizabeth “Betsy” Perry Graduate Student Conference Poster Prize (new in 2015) recognizes an outstanding scholarly poster presented by a graduate student at the annual WAWH conference. All fields of history will be considered. Current WAWH board members are not eligible for the prize. Graduate student poster presenters must be present and available to interact with observers during the poster session. Posters will be judged on content, clarity, and effectiveness of overall presentation. Conference attendees will cast their votes by secret ballot. The winner will be announced at the Saturday night banquet (students need not be present at the banquet to win).
All posters accepted for the poster session will be considered for the $100 prize, provided the graduate student is a current member of WAWH at the time of the conference, and is present at the poster session. No additional prize application is necessary. For the graduate student poster cover sheet, click here.
