Student Poster Competition

In 2014 and 2015, the Coalition held student poster competitions at two of its semi-annual meetings. This competition was created to inspire students to explore connections between human rights and science, engineering and health through the creation of a poster, which were judged at the Coalition meetings by members of the AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition who are scientists, engineers, and health professionals as well as other experts with experience connecting science, technology and human rights in their professional work.
