IF you indicated your interest in OSPA during abstract submission, you need to confirm your participation by 30 October on the OSPA website (to be launched). In mid-October, more information will be emailed to students who opted into OSPA during abstract submission.
AGU student members pursuing an undergraduate, masters, or doctorate degree are eligible to participate. You must be the lead author of the abstract presented. Postdoctoral researchers are not eligible.
During the abstract submission process, students must indicate their interest in participating in order to be considered. Students cannot be added after the abstract submission deadline passes. You must confirm your participation by 30 October 2019 in the online system.
AGU recognizes that scores and judges’ comments are important for students to better their presentation skills for future sessions. Sign back into the online system in January 2020 to view your scores and to find out if you have won an OSPA.
This award is focused on recognizing presentation skills. Judges will assess you in the following areas on a scale of 1–5.
Volunteer judges are an integral part of the Outstanding Student Presentation Awards. Many AGU students will remember their first OSPA experience fondly thanks to the help and generosity of the judges. To participate, judges may sign up and schedule themselves online after 1 November. Judges must first agree to the Honor Code and register with their institution email address. Judges are not allowed to evaluate students from their institution or students they are acquainted with.
Whether judging an oral or a poster session, the presentation must be orally presented and explained by the student.
If you are at the meeting and cannot judge one of your presentations, you are responsible for finding a substitute. Ask a colleague or friend.
This award is focused on recognizing presentation skills. Judges will assess the students in the following areas and rate them on a scale of 1–5. A more detailed rubric will be available soon in the OSPA navigation menu of the OSPA website.
All scores must still be entered online by the deadline on Friday, 20 December 2019.
Liaisons are designated by the primary session convener and will be contacted by the OSPA coordinator for their section in October. Liaisons are responsible for helping fill 3 judging slots for each confirmed OPSA student in their session and should leverage their professional network in order to recruit judges. Liaisons may choose to judge students in their session themselves if they do not have a conflict of interest.
Liaisons can see the students in their session, track their judge recruitment progress, and ensure that they’ve fulfilled their responsibilities on the OSPA website, which will open on 1 November.
Responsibilities: Recruit three judges for every OSPA presentation in your Fall Meeting session(s) by leveraging your professional network, November – December 2019.
We assist in recruiting as well, but your professional connections are integral in recruiting volunteers.
Section leaders designate at least two OSPA coordinators each year to encourage volunteers to participate as OSPA judges during Fall Meeting. In order to be eligible for this role, volunteers must be AGU non-student members, but they do not have to attend Fall Meeting. The coordinator role requires a minimal time commitment (about 0.5 to one hour per week through mid-January).
Eligibility: Only non-student AGU members are eligible to serve as coordinators. It is not required to attend Fall Meeting, but attendance will be helpful.
If you are interested in participating as an OSPA coordinator, contact your Section leadership.
Coordinator designations will be finalized by August.
