The American Association of Physical Anthropologists awards prizes to outstanding presentations at the annual meeting whose first author is a student member.
For an excellent poster or podium presentation – unrestricted topic
For an excellent poster or podium presentation on bones or teeth
For an excellent poster or podium presentation on primatology
For excellent poster and podium presentations that are judged to best implement either traditional or state-of-the-art anatomical methodologies in innovative anthropological research (subject to co-funding by the Association of Anatomists).
There are many more excellent student poster and podium presentations than we have named awards. As the result a number of Honorable Mention Prizes are awarded each year.
Many thanks to Springer and Steven Byers for donating books given to the 2017 Student Presentation award winners and honorable mentions.
