The Spielvogel Award (established in 2014) recognizes the outstanding presentation (paper or poster) by an undergrad student at the Annual Meeting. Papers/posters submitted for this award must be based on novel analysis and interpretation of primary data (collected by the student and/or a co-author) and/or secondary data (published or unpublished data collected by someone other than the author[s]). In addition to delivering the presentation at the Annual Meeting, the candidate for the award is expected to have made a major contribution to the work (e.g., at least 50% of the data collection and/or analysis and/or writing). Papers/posters are evaluated on the basis of the quality of the research, analysis and presentation by a sub-committee of the HBA Executive Committee. Recipients are honored at the annual meeting Awards Luncheon.
