Student Learning Conference Presentation Proposal Cover Sheet
This year will mark the 17th annual Howard County Gifted and Talented Student Learning Conference, a day-long conference at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Kossiakoff Center in Laurel at which students in the Intern/Mentor and Independent Research Programs have an opportunity to present the results of their research and creative investigations with audiences of students and adults in the Howard County Public School System. There will be several successive sessions occurring simultaneously, which will include 25-minute oral presentations and 10-minute visual display presentations. Attendees will register their first, second, and third choice of presentation to attend for every session. The conference will also include a performing arts session at which current students in either the Intern/Mentor or Independent Research Program demonstrate their talents in music, creative writing, dance, film, and other lively arts. Not all applicants’ proposals to present will be accepted. The G/T Resource Teachers, as a committee, review applications and build a program that will include examples of excellent student work and also enough variety so that sessions will offer something of interest to all attendees.
Presenting at an academic or professional conference is considered an honor. Getting accepted to present can be extremely competitive. When adults update their resumes, they include all the conference presentations they have made in order to demonstrate that they are influential leaders in their fields. Having your name published in a conference program adds to your professional reputation, and the program, itself, can be included as an impressive artifact in your portfolio.
Before you submit your proposal to your teacher, check your date book to determine if you are free to present on April 24 and to attend the rehearsal on April 20 from 2:15 – 3:30 p.m. On the date of the conference, you will be expected to arrive by car before the conference begins and to attend the conference until it ends (shortly before schools dismiss.) Only those students who sign in the box below will be considered as possible speakers. Presenting at a countywide conference involves a serious commitment, as students have registered for your session and your name has been printed in the program. Once again, please do not submit a proposal unless you are committed to presenting!
