Thanks to the excellent feedback of past participants and judges, SRW 2019 has realigned the subject areas with the support of the Council of Principal Investigators (CPI) to reflect broader subject areas and not specific naming characteristic of departments or programs at Texas A&M. As you will see listed below the categories are a grouping of related disciplines.

 We invite you to register for an area that you feel best characterizes your research. For example if you are in the department of Agricultural Economics and your research material more closely focuses upon business practices, submit under Subject Area 10. If it more closely aligns with microbiology research, then select Subject Area 2. If you have any questions about which subject area you should select please contact us at

 Oral and Poster Presentations will take place from 03/18/2019 until 03/22/2019 and the sessions will be divided into ten subject areas. The following subject areas are being used for the 2019 competition.
