Drew Horton won first prize for the recent OR/MS Tomorrow mini poster competition. His poster is titled, ``The Impact of Considering Equity in Optimization for Urban Planning.”  This equity related research was advised by Emily Speakman. The OR/MS Tomorrow mini poster competition, supported by the Seth Bonder Foundation, seeks to nurture student researchers in developing the skills to summarize and articulate their research ideas effectively and efficiently. Candidates were required to design one letter-sized page to communicate their research topic to the broader audience in the OR/MS community. A group of judges chose the winners based on the novelty of the topic, maturity of the content, quality of the information, engagement, and aesthetics. In addition to cash prizes, the winning posters are published in the OR/MS Tomorrow newsletter, Fall/Winter 2022 issue.
