Poster Presentation Information:
Poster Presentation Guidelines:
Posters cannot be larger than 3 feet in height by 4 feet wide (36” x 48”)
Posters must be presented on heavy duty, 2ply display board
Posters must be placed on top of a table. Easels will not be provided
Poster must be set up by 4:45 pm on the day of the event and must be taken

Poster Presentation Tips:
Use white spaces to separate different poster sections and group related information by color or in the same box
A large font title should be placed at the very top of the poster
Use figures and pictures to tell your story
Minimize the amount of text and use a large enough font for viewers to read your
poster from 6 feet away. Ideally you should use less than 800 words and avoid large
blocks of text
Organize material in a logical progression
Practice your presentation as you work through your revisions to ensure that you have included all of the necessary information

Further Resources on Creating a Poster
You can print the poster in individuals sections, and paste under the appropriate title.
Each team is responsible for printing their own poster. Please contact your individual school to see if they offer assistance and help with the printing process.
You should print a test page using the “Scale to fit” option to make sure your poster prints without any issues. If you are satisfied with this printing then proceed with your print.
