The annual Central States Water Environment Association (CSWEA) meeting is coming up. The meeting will include a student poster competition, which is a great opportunity to interact with professionals from industry in the Mid-West. We had a very strong presence last year, and I'd be glad for a repeat of that showing.

Registration for the conference is $25 for students. There will be cash prize for the best poster (see attachment).

Please email Prof. Jeremy Guest if you have any questions. We can help arrange transportation if students would like to attend - simply let him know (jsguest@illinois.edu).
