The annual poster session and undergraduate awards meeting was held at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville on Friday, April 15, 2022. Forty undergraduate research posters were presented by students from eight colleges and universities within or near the Virginia Section. This marked the 34th year of the Poster Session that highlights undergraduate student research. As usual, the University of Virginia topped the list of presentations, with twelve posters this year, followed by Bridgewater College with nine, the University of Mary Washington with five, and Longwood University and Hampden-Sydney College with four each. Students from Virginia Tech, Virginia Commonwealth University, and James Madison University also presented papers. Pizza and soft drinks were served during the Poster Session.
About 40 persons attended the awards meeting that followed the poster session.
Dr. Rebecca Rose Pompano, the meeting host, greeted everyone. Ms. Vanessa Lopez, Chair of the Virginia Section, presided. She presented awards and gifts to ten outstanding students from colleges and universities (several other students could not attend the meeting). Each award winner received a Certificate of Recognition, a membership in the American Chemical Society, and a gift card. Thanks to Rebecca Rose Pompano, Jim Demas, Cindy Knight and the University of Virginia for organizing this excellent meeting.
