Best undergraduate student oral and poster presentations will be awarded based on the same criteria as the Buell and Braun awards (see http://www.esa.org/albuquerque/buell_braun.php for additional details). Awards for the 2009 recipients will be presented at the Student Section award ceremony at the 2010 annual meeting. For questions regarding the award, please contact Rob Salguero-Gomez (salguero (at) sas.upenn.edu), ESA Student Section Vice Chair.
