The AEESP 2023 Conference had over 300 poster presentations, including 241 presented by students.  A big thank you goes out to all of the poster presenters and especially to the nearly 150 volunteer judges who visited all of these posters and provided feedback to identify our AEESP 2023 Student Poster Award Winners!
