Graduate Students:

The Department of Crop and Soil Sciences has established a tradition where each spring students who have published a first-author, peer-reviewed product are recognized for this important accomplishment with a ‘mug award’.  Yes—it really is a mug, but a classy one, emblazoned with a wrapper like the one attached containing the article citation and a key figure or table from the manuscript. The venue for “Mugging” (i.e., presentation of the awards) will be announced later and may occur at seminar or a special spring meeting of the graduate students.

We would like to honor you and recognize your accomplishment. If you have published a first-author, peer reviewed manuscript in 2016 or early 2017 please reply to this message as soon as possible, but no later than Friday, February 17, 2017, with the following information:

1)      Complete citation for the manuscript.

2)      Electronic copy of the publication.
