Jim & Katie Krause CNR Student Research Symposium 

The 19th Annual Jim and Katie Krause College of Natural Resources Student Research Symposium will be held on Friday, April 6, 2018, at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Daniel O. Trainer Natural Resources Building. The Symposium originated with former UW-Stevens Point CNR Dean Victor Phillips and is organized by a steering committee made up of students working with faculty and staff members. 

Each year approximately 100 undergraduate students showcase their research to 400-500 peers, faculty, staff, and the public. This experience is a great way to hone presentation skills in preparation for your professional career. All presenters have the choice of being evaluated by a judge, with highest honors awarded to the upper quartile.

The CNR Symposium is often accompanied by a photo contest organized entirely by students and sponsored by the UW-Stevens Point chapter of Xi Sigma Pi. It attracts over 100 entries and provides an excellent sideshow that blends with the scheduled agenda of the symposium itself. The photo contest usually awards 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes for the top entries (voted on by their peers) in flora, fauna, and scenic and international categories.
