APS Councilors-at-Large; Gary Munkvold, Peter Ojiambo, and Katherine Stevenson
The theme for the 2018 Councilor’s Challenge is ‘A Showcase of Undergraduate Research in Plant Pathology’ and the goal is to contribute to the mission of the APS Office of Education and the newly formed Undergraduate Task Force of recruiting and retaining top undergraduates in plant pathology.
This is an opportunity for you to:
Your challenge as a committee is to recruit as many undergraduate students as possible and have them submit a spotlight article or a short video that documents who they are and their research using this link. These spotlights should include a short student biography that will include academic details, a brief description of the research the student is undertaking and how they discovered plant pathology.
The APS Undergraduate Student Task Force will evaluate the applications and select the best entries to showcase on the new APS Undergraduate Website. The committee(s) attributed with the highest number of undergraduate applications will win the challenge.
The deadline for undergraduate applications is November 30, 2018. Please Peter Ojiambo for any questions or clarifications related to this challenge.
