Awards were given at the 2017 Princeton Research Day Reception for best presentations. In keeping with the interdisciplinary spirit of this campus-wide event, presenters were evaluated primarily on how effectively they communicated their research to an educated, non-specialist audience. Judges included freshman and sophomore students, as well as faculty and staff members and members of the community.
Consult the 2017 judging rubric for more information on how presentations were judged.
All PRD attendees were invited to vote for their favorite presentations using the Princeton Research Day 2017 Guidebook platform. The Princeton Choice Awards were 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 also received 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.
