Proposal Details:

While all session proposals are welcomed, it is recommended that session proposals focus on high school students, college students, or a professional audience. Moreover, the review committee strongly encourages session proposals designed to motivate, inspire, and educate African American and Hispanic male students to succeed in high school, college, and beyond. Proposals that focus on high school students and college students should describe the purpose of the session, learning objectives, and expected outcomes of the session as well as provide information that describes the presentation format. Proposals that focus on a professional audience should clearly describe the audience the proposal addresses as well as delineate the learning objectives, presentation format, and goals of the session.
