At Luminate Conference, our aim is to celebrate undergraduate research and promote the exchange of scholarly ideas among students. In line with this mission, any Fair attendee who posts at least one meaningful question and/or comment on a showcased project will be automatically entered in a draw to win one of three raffle prizes.

The draws will be held shortly after the conclusion of our conference and winners will be contacted at the email they use to post comments.
