Awards will be given at Princeton Research Day Reception for best presentations. In keeping with the interdisciplinary spirit of this campus-wide event, presenters will be evaluated primarily on how effectively they communicate their research to an educated, non-specialist audience. Judges include freshman and sophomore students as well as faculty and staff members.
Consult the 2016 judging rubric for more information on how presentations are judged.
See the Archive page for the 2016 winners.
All PRD attendees will be invited to vote for their favorite presentations using the PRD Voting Platform on the day of the event. Attendees can access this platform and cast their votes by scanning the session-specific QR codes posted throughout the presentation rooms. The Princeton Choice Awards will be given to the presenters who received the highest and second-highest number of votes from across all presentation categories.
Award amounts range from $100 to $300. Award recipients will also receive a personalized award certificate signed by the University President, Provost, Dean of the College, Dean of the Faculty, Dean of the Graduate School and Dean for Research.
