Each year the CRPA organizes a student contest in conjunction with our annual conference. This year we’re bringing the contest to the ICRP symposium and inviting all student delegates to enter!
What is the Student Contest?
Students wishing to enter the contest must submit an abstract of their work. From these abstracts, finalists are selected and given the opportunity to present their work as an oral presentation at the ICRP Symposium. As the symposium is being hosted by both the ICRP and CRPA, there will be two winners chosen:
The Canadian winner will be awarded the Anthony J. MacKay trophy. Anthony MacKay served as the CRPA archivist for many years and the award presented annually at the CRPA conference was named in his honor.
The International winner will be awarded the ICRP student contest trophy.
Who Can Enter?
This contest is open to all students enrolled full-time in an educational institution or who have graduated from a full-time program in the last 12 months. All finalists must be able to attend the conference in person to present their work. If you are unable to attend, you will lose your position as a finalist.
The topic of the presentation must include some aspect of radiation protection. Submissions that do not meet this requirement will be deemed ineligible. The judging criteria for abstracts (Student Contest Judging Criteria) are available for all participants to view so they can understand how the judges will be assessing their entry.
How do I enter?
Entries for the student contest must be submitted using the template for the Student Paper Contest. The rest of the submission follows the same procedures as the other abstracts, including the submission deadline. This way if you are not selected as a contest finalist, your abstract can still be considered by the program committee.
Your submission must be no longer than 750 words and contain the following sections:
Background or Introduction
How can I get more information?
