Students in any academic department that sponsors the award are eligible for the award.
Applications will be judged base on the following criteria:
To apply for consideration of an award, a student must electronically submit a well composed essay describing the use of technology in the research project, to the chairperson of their academic department.

If final paper/poster is not ready in time for submission, include a rationale (i.e., analyses are in progress). After all submissions are evaluated within the academic department, those deemed worthy of further consideration will be forwarded to a campus based awards committee one week prior to the date of the symposium. The committee, composed of representatives from the academic and professional areas of the University, will identify those submissions worthy of an award.
The application will consist of a well composed essay of 500-750 words describing the technology used in the research project. The essay should discuss the following themes:
