Download the Poster Template
Please design your poster using ONLY one of the provided poster templates. Posters are 36″ x 48″.


Organize your Poster Presentation

Using the RISE poster template, organize your research or presentation by keeping these questions in mind:

  • What is the main function of your poster?
  • What is the information you want your audience to receive and understand?
  • Remember, less is more. Too much text or too many graphics can be overwhelming. The goal of the poster is to make the information easy for the audience to understand. Anything that does not help this process is unnecessary.  Your message should be immediately obvious.
  • 75% of your final score is based on your abstract and poster. Keep in mind that a judge might not have a background in the area of your work, so be sure to design and present for a layperson’s understanding.
