SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ACADEMY OF SCIENCES ANNUAL MEETING STUDENT PRESENTATION AWARDS

Over 40 students entered this ear's competition for SCAS student-presentation awards. Awards were given in the categories of Biological and Physical Sciences for both posters and talks. Owing to the large number of student presentations in both categories of the Biological Sciences, two Honorable Mention awards were given. First-place award winners received $200 and a one-year membership to the Academy. Honorable mention winners received $100 and a one-year membership to the Academy.

Membership

The academy is always seeking new members and members who would like to become more involved in our activities by serving on our Board of Directors. The board meets once a month to plan and direct the society's activities, which include the annual meeting, publication of the bulletin, offering financial support to graduate students, and operating a Research Training Program for high school students.
