Take a few minutes before you print your poster to run through this quick checklist (or ask a friend) to identify areas of potential improvement. Just answer each question and add up your score.
20 = Congratulations, you’re ready! Find out how to print your poster.
15-19 = You’re almost done. Where did you score less than a 2? Follow the links in the questions to the appropriate section in the poster guide for more information.
Less than 15 = You’re off to a good start, but you still have some work to do.
