At the Annual Meeting, a Silent Auction is held to raise funds for student travel awards! This event started more than a decade ago and has been a great success, raising money to assist more than a hundred students to attend and present their work at the annual meeting. It is a great honor to receive a travel award and for many students, this is the first time they have presented their research to a scientific audience.
Popular auction items that you can donate include seabird artwork, photographs, crafts, books and field guides, t-shirts, field gear, and any interesting seabird memorabilia. The key to the auction’s success is for folks to bid often and generously on the items displayed during the annual meeting! Besides the great selection, it’s about helping students develop their professional careers! PSG is a registered 501 (c)(3) and offers tax receipts for all donations.
If you have something you would like to donate, or have questions, please contact the student representative, email@example.com. Thanks very much for your continued support of PSG students!
