Congratulations to E&PS grad Hannah Susorney on her Dwornik Award for Best Graduate Poster. Hannah won the award for her poster presentation at the 2015 Lunar and Planetary Science Conference, entitled “The Surface Roughness of Mercury: Investigating the Effects of Impact Cratering, Volcanism, and Tectonics.”
The Dwornik Award was started in 1991 with a generous endowment by Dr. Stephen E. Dwornik, who wished to encourage U.S. students to become involved with NASA and planetary science. The award consists of a plaque and a monetary award given for outstanding student presentations (in both poster and oral categories) or a plaque for honorable mentions (poster and oral) at the annual Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC) hosted by the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI). The awards are managed and judged by the Planetary Geology Division of the Geological Society of America.
