The competitive papers can be related to any discipline. There are no restrictions on topic or length. To be competitive, the papers should incorporate primary or secondary research and demonstrate good writing and documentation style.

Submit a title, 250-word abstract, and paper using the abstract submission form. The papers will be judged before the conference, and students will be asked to make 10-minute presentation (and answer questions if time permits) of their paper on the day of the conference. The use of PowerPoint or other presentation aids is optional.

The winner of the paper presentation competition will receive a plaque and book scholarship.

Although there is no cost for student presenters, all attendees must register for the conference so we have an accurate count for food and materials.
