Each SRG will submit a one page summary mentioning their dental, oral and craniofacial research advocacy efforts for the previous year. Applications will be judged by the NSRG Board based on the following parameters:

  • The number of participants involved in advocacy efforts. The NSRG will be looking for advocacy activities involving more than several select individuals. Ideally, advocacy activities should include a LSRG as a whole.
  • The number of activities held. NSRG will be looking that a chapter is involved in advocacy at more than one isolated event. Items may include responses to action alerts, local representative visits, participating in oral health related public policy or attending AADR advocacy day.
  • The application quality will also be considered. Clear well organized applications with photos and documentation of events are encouraged.

Winning schools are not eligible for 2 consecutive years after their winning year as to support advocacy efforts at other locations.

The Best local student Research Group Advocates will receive a $200 check and will be recognized at the AADR National Student Research Group Student Meeting and Awards Ceremony  at the AADR Annual Meeting. 

Please submit one page document to Tiphani Seay at nsrg@aadr.org
