The details for displaying posters entering are below:
Map Size: Posters can be any size, but larger sizes are preferred. The maxim poster size is 4 ft x 6 ft, either in landscape or portrait layouts. For larger size landscape will fit better.

Student - Any enrolled in classes pursuing a degree or certificate
