The research presented should be appropriate to the student’s discipline and career goals. Proprietary research is excluded. Presentations from all disciplines are invited.

Interested students should contact their campus coordinator for information on how their work is to be considered at the campus level. Only those students endorsed by a campus coordinator can enter the statewide competition.
If a student’s work has been selected by the campus for presentation in the system-wide competition, the students will submit their information through an on-line submission website which will include the information from the Student Delegate Registration Formand attach a written summary of the research.
