Dear SPS Advisor,
This email is to recognize the achievement of one or more of your student(s) at the 2016 Quadrennial Physics Congress (PhysCon) held November 3-5, 2016 in San Francisco, CA.
Your student(s) were awarded the highly competitive Optical Society of America (OSA) Best Art Awards which recognizes the excellence of the artistic merit, originality, category-specific attributes, accompanying abstract, and adherence to submission guidance of the submitted pieces. Thanks to generous sponsorship from OSA, this award comes with $200 and a certificate of achievement.
We were thrilled to have your students’ participation in the PhysCon Art Gallery and know that this work would not have been possible without your mentorship and support. Thank you for supporting their work and active engagement with SPS!
As 2016 comes to a close, we want to remind you of several other benefits offered to students in SPS:
Thank you again for your work as an advisor. We are truly grateful for your contributions and look forward to continuing to work with you in 2017.
