The American Association of Physical Anthropologists awards seven prizes to outstanding student presentations at the annual meeting. For a list of these and their descriptions, please visit the Student awards page. 

The eligibility requirements for competing are also outlined in detail on the Student presentation awards. Please note that the first author of the presentation must be the student who is competing for a prize.

If you are eligible, the next step is to submit a summary of your presentation using the form below by midnight March 1, 2017.

You will want to prepare your submission information ahead of time as as you cannot save the page and come back to edit and submit later. Here is a list of the information and materials needed:

1. It will be helpful if you have on hand the email from aapavp2017(at)gmail.com indicating acceptance of your abstract (these were sent out on December 29, 2016). Please cut and paste the requested information directly from that email into the indicated fields below to facilitate the entries database.

2. You'll need to include a list of your coauthors, their institutional affiliations, and a brief description of their individual contributions to the research being presented. 

3. You also need to submit a summary of the research you are presenting. The word-limit is 1,000, not including your bibiliography. Your statement should be organized with the following headings: 

If two student co-authors contributed equally to the paper and wish to be considered as co-principal investigators (PI’s) of the paper, please fill out the form below using the first author's information. Check the box indicating co-PI status. Then, send an email to the Chair of the Student Programs Committee, Leslea Hlusko, with the second student's name to include with the entry. Should a pair of student PI's win an award, they will each receive a check for half the amount of the total award. 

Three judges will be assigned to evaluate each presentation. Winners will be announced at the Annual Meetings Closing Reception at 6pm on Saturday, April 22, 2017.

If you have any questions, please contact the Chair of the Student Programs Committee, Prof. Leslea Hlusko.
