Following is a bit more information about all of the wonderful ways the AAAS Annual Meeting involves young and senior scientists alike. To learn more about our meeting you can also visit: www.aaas.org/meetings

Student Poster Competition
This poster competition is open to college undergraduate and graduate students only. Students will showcase their research in the Exhibit Hall and present to senior scientists who serve as poster judges. Winners receive a cash prize, a one-year complimentary AAAS membership which includes a subscription to the journal Science, recognition in Science, and a framed certificate. Although participants are required to register for the meeting, the student registration fee is deeply discounted: $60 for members; $70 for nonmembers.

Student Session Aides
Undergraduate and graduate students can volunteer to ensure the meeting runs smoothly. Those who volunteer for 8 hours receive free meeting and poster session registration; those who volunteer for 16 hours also receive a one-year subscription to Science Online. Whenever possible, aides are assigned to support sessions of particular interest to them. All have the opportunity to assist, listen to, and meet a range of interesting people, including leading scientists, Nobelists, popular authors, government leaders, and media personalities. Student Session Aide registration can be found here: http://meeting2010.aaas.org/student/pages/SessionAide.aspx

Judges for the Student Poster Competition
We will be seeking scientists, engineers, and other professionals to serve as judges for this competition. Poster judges receive a deeply discounted meeting registration rate ($110) and have the opportunity to meet colleagues from across the nation and around the world. Moreover, they can help mentor the next generation of scientists and engineers. If you would like to sign up to be a poster judge, please contact Kim Klyberg, Meetings Assistant, at kklyberg@aaas.org
