Catherine Smith has been awarded the "Best Student Poster" award

ST. PETERSBURG, FL - Catherine has been awarded the "Best Student Poster" award at the recent Geological Society of America-AASP-TSP joint Annual Meeting, this by the AASP-TSP (American Association of Stratigraphic Palynologists-The Palynological Society).

Judged by an ad hoc committee formed by AASP Awards Committee members at the time of the annual meeting. The criteria are established by the judging committee and should include neatness and attractiveness of the poster including its graphics; scientific merit of the research problem; clarity and innovativeness of the research methods; clarity and simplicity of the results. Awardee must be first author, should be a student, or if the awardee has formally completed a graduate degree, cannot have been employed more than 6 months before the award is made.

Please congratulate her for a job well done.
