Submissions for the Student Paper Award competition can be under initial review at a peer-reviewed journal but cannot be already accepted (in press) or published in a peer-reviewed journal. Past winners have submitted papers from their thesis and dissertation as well as class papers. Papers will be reviewed by a panel of SAFRIG members. All authors will receive comments from panel members on their paper, which may be helpful for revisions if they choose to submit their paper to a journal. The winner(s) will receive a $150 monetary award, coverage of their conference registration fee, and a certificate. The award will be presented during the SAFRIG Business Meeting at the 2022 conference in Westminster, Colorado.
