Call for Submissions
Student Poster Competition
Undergraduate and Graduate Categories

We invite students pursuing studies in agricultural economics, resource economics, environmental economics, agribusiness, or related fields to participate in the 14th Annual CAES-SCAE Policy Conference by submitting their research posters. Your posters can showcase independent research related to your thesis, coursework, or academic employment. The poster competition will occur at 5 p.m. on January 25th, as part of the Canadian Agrifood Policy Conference (CAPC) scheduled for January 25-26, 2024, in Ottawa, at the Infinity Convention Centre. Even if you cannot be present in Ottawa, you can still submit your poster for virtual consideration and presentation.

This competition presents an outstanding professional development opportunity. The audience typically consists of professionals in the fields of economics and agricultural economics, including government officials, representatives from financial institutions, and professionals from various food, agricultural, environmental, and related organizations.

Opportunities for Finalists:

The top three finalists in each category will have the chance to present their posters to a live audience, competing for top prizes before the conference workshop on Friday, January 26th, from 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. The first-place winners will receive complimentary registration for the future CAES-SCAE Annual Meeting (scheduled for Summer 2024 in Winnipeg, Manitoba) in addition to a cash prize. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three finalists in both the undergraduate and graduate categories.

Undergraduate Prizes                                   Graduate Prizes

1st Prize  $250.00 CND                                1st Prize   $500.00 CND

2nd Prize $150.00 CND                               2nd Prize  $300.00 CND

3rd Prize $100.00 CND                                3rd Prize    $200.00 CND

Winners will also receive a complimentary one-year membership to the Canadian Agricultural Economics Society.

Poster Preparation:

Posters should be designed for a non-academic audience, with a focus on the policy rationale and implications of your research. While adhering to the typical research structure (background, objectives, methods, results), keep in mind the broader policy context. If you plan to submit virtually, in addition to submitting a PDF file of your poster, please create a 2-minute video presentation of your poster, as if you were addressing a live audience, either using Zoom or as a voice-over in PowerPoint. This video, along with the poster, will be uploaded to the conference website. For those attending in person, posters will be displayed on poster boards, and you can directly interact with conference attendees to answer questions. Virtual attendees should also be available for any inquiries.

The competition will be evaluated by a panel of judges, including academics, government representatives, and industry experts, with input from conference attendees.

How to Submit:

Email the title of your presentation, the names of authors (identifying the presenting author), a 100-word abstract, and whether you will attend virtually or in-person to Ashley Klotz at contact@caes-scae.ca by December 15, 2023.
