The Cordell-Powers Prize Contest Is Closed!
This year we already have received more than 10 excellent applications to participate in the Cordell-Powers Prize contest. Therefore, the contest is closed.  Although applications no longer are being accepted, we encourage those who considered competing to present their papers at this year's Pecos Conference and submit an abstract next year.
