Thank you for your assistance in coordinating the Outstanding Student Presentation Awards!   The OSPA Coordinator position is a rewarding and highly visible role.  Many scientists think back fondly of winning an OSPA at the beginning of their scientific careers.  Additionally, participating in the OSPA process provides valuable experience for young career scientists in learning how to present their work effectively.

Coordinators are responsible for soliciting and securing three judges for each student in their section or focus group that chose to participate in the OSPA process.  They oversee and work in tandem with the Liaisons to ensure that all students are judged.  They are also responsible for deliberating the scores and determining the winners for their section or focus group.
