Thank you for volunteering to judge student presentations for the Outstanding Student Paper Awards (OSPA)! Volunteer judges are an integral part of the judging process. Many AGU members share their positive experiences in giving back to students and a handful can even boast their OSPA win as marking the beginning of their scientific career.

Honor Code

The purpose of this Honor Code is to establish rules and procedures of the American Geophysical Union governing judge conduct with respect to the integrity of the Outstanding Student Paper Award program. Judges agree to the following:

  • I do not know and am not acquainted personally nor professionally with the students I will select to judge.
  • I am not a student.
  • I will attend all presentations that I sign up to judge.
  • I will submit all score sheets (whether the student was present or not) no later than 22 December 2017.
