The Coastal Society actively supports opportunities for students to present research on emerging concepts and enrich the coastal community’s collective knowledge. Previously, TCS has presented awards for the best student poster and best student presentation at The Coastal Society’s biennial conferences. In 2019, TCS is offering awards to acknowledge the best student member posters that were submitted electronically. Through the electronic format, TCS opened this opportunity to a larger number of its student members who might not otherwise be able to travel to an in-person conference venue. The deadline for the 2019 submittals was June 14th.
