The Tennessee Association for School Psychologists (TASP) announces a call for Poster Proposals for the 2017 TASP Fall Conference, to be held on October 26-27, 2017 at the Knoxville Hilton (501 West Church Avenue, Knoxville, TN 37902). The poster presentations will be held in conjunction with the Social/Silent Auction on the evening of Thursday, October 26, 2017, from 4:45-6:30pm. Proposals for posters will be reviewed and considered for inclusion in the program if they are received by October 1, 2017. The poster session will allow presenters and attendees to engage in extended discussions regarding the author’s presentation that is in an illustrated format, on a poster board. All posters should be presented in APA format.

This year’s poster session is being sponsored by The Tennessee Psychologist, TASP’s very own electronic quarterly newsletter. As a result, all participants will have their abstracts published in the January 1 issue of the newsletter. All abstracts will also be published in the conference program as well. In addition, we are providing cash awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place posters, as judged by conference attendees. The first place winner will receive $100, the second place winner will receive $75, and the third place winner will receive $50. (If a group of students serves as authors, award checks will only be made out to the first author. However, students are encouraged to split the cash award equally among them. Full prize money will not be provided to each co-author.)

Rules for Participation:
1. Any undergraduate or graduate student may submit a poster proposal.
2. Proposals may include original empirical studies, program development/evaluation, critical literature review, meta-analysis, etc.
3. For accepted posters, the first author must present the poster at the conference poster presentation session. You are welcome and strongly encouraged to register and attend the rest of the conference events, particularly since the awards presentation will occur during the luncheon portion of the conference.

Procedures for Submitting Proposals:
Submissions should include:
1. The Poster Proposal cover sheet available on www.tasponline.org and included at the end of this document.
2. A 500 word or less summary/abstract on 8.5 x 11 inch paper, 12-point font, double-spaced, detailing the work and the proposed poster. Please adhere to these parameters as space may be limited in the conference program.

Proposals must be emailed to newsletter@tasponline.org by midnight on October 16, 2015.
