Poster Contest #RxTechDay2020 Results


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PTSA made the decision to hold its annual Poster Contest virtually in celebration of #RxTechDay2020. We are excited to share the 4 amazing posters submitted!

Participants sent a pdf version of their posters to be graded by a panel of judges who were selected to represent different pharmacy practices: Jennifer Bean (Hospital), Susan Iannuzzi (Community), and Loren Voice (Education).  Following the rubric, the judges reviewed each poster and gave participants scores.  The scores from all 3 judges were totaled together for each individual.  The participant with the highest total number of points accumulated was the winner.  A special thanks to our judges for lending their expertise and time to make a fair selection process.

This contest wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of Fresenius Kabi. Fresenius Kabi provided a $500.00 cash prize to this year’s winner.  Check out the winning poster and runners up below!
