Types of Proposals

Students may submit the following types of proposals:

Students who submit individual proposals will be placed on a panel with other students who submit individual proposals.  Students will want to create a 10 – 15 minute talk concerning an element of the conference theme. 

Students who submit a proposal for a panel of three students should submit a panel presentation. The panel will be given 45 minutes to speak and should leave five to ten minutes for a question and answer session. 

Round Table Discussions
Round table presentations ask for students to create a discussion topic concerning the theme of the conference that will be of interest for those attending the conference.  There can be three to four presenters.  Each should give no more than a five-minute talk.  The floor should then be opened up for a broad discussion of the topic.

Video Presentation
Each student interested in making a video presentation should create a 5 – 10 minute video concerning a topic that works with the theme of this conference. 

Poster Session
Each student interested in taking part in the poster presentation should construct a poster that in some way shows an issue that relates to the theme of the conference.  For example, it may introduce the topic of team-building and may supply information that shows a student’s research on the topic.  This could include information from secondary research on how to build teams, it could include exercises that the student has created and used, and it could include survey results concerning the topic of team building that may analyze how good teams operate vs. poor teams. Click on the following link to examine how to create a poster for display:  Poster Guidelines.

Students may also enter photographs for the conference that display a theme concerning leadership. 

Students, who are interested, can draw a picture, cartoon, or create graphics that represent the theme of the conference.  These drawings will be displayed at the conference and conference goers can vote on their favorite drawing or graphics.  The winner will receive a small cash award.  

Students interested in submitting a proposal should fill out the Session Proposa Form by February 20, 2013.  Students should hear back concerning acceptance by March 1, 2013.
