The National Corn Growers Association has extended the deadline for submission to the Gary Lamie Graduate Student Poster Competition, sponsored by the Indiana Corn Marketing Council, until May 7. Interested graduate students should hurry to take advantage of this special opportunity to present their research to an audience of potential employers and funding organizations. Entries will be featured June 2 through June 4 during the poster session of the 2014 Corn Utilization and Technology Contest in Louisville, Kentucky.
“The National Corn Growers Association is pleased to lend our support and encouragement to young researchers,” said NCGA Director of Research and New Uses Dr. Richard Vierling. “Corn offers a variety of solutions for many of today’s problems, and we are honored to play a small role in recognizing the scholarly efforts that will help create entirely new ways to utilize this amazing resource.”
A panel of industry and academic experts will evaluate the posters based upon their relevance to the corn industry, scientific originality, viable and supportable conclusions and oral and visual presentation. Awards will be presented for the top three graduate student posters.
