The IDEC Best Presentation: Graduate/Undergraduate Award acknowledges quality scholarship and presentation by Graduate and Undergraduate students at the Annual Conference. The IDEC Director of Regions coordinate with the Conference Abstract Review coordinator to determine the top five abstracts accepted for presentation at conference. The five abstract presentations are then scored by selected IDEC members at the Annual Conference.


Abstracts must score among the top five Graduate and Undergraduate student submissions for annual conference. Abstracts must also be presented by the author(s) at conference.


Abstracts must meet the submission requirements for the Annual Conference call for scholarship, and the primary author must be a Graduate or Undergraduate student.


The regional chairs select individuals from each region to jury the top five Graduate/Undergraduate Student abstracts to determine the best presentation. Presentations are scored using a rubric.
