Call for Papers – Junior Academy

Message from Carmen Hauck, representing the Junior Academy:

I am writing to announce this year’s call for papers for participation in the Annual Meeting of the Montana Academy of Science. It will be held April 13th and 14th 2012 on the campus of Montana Tech, UM-Butte. The annual banquet and poster session will be held on Friday evening. As the student presentations will take place on Saturday, attendance on Friday is optional. See the attached paper for more information about the program.

Students who would like to present a poster Friday night should indicate so when registering for the meeting.

Students who wish to be scheduled for a 10 minute presentation in the Junior Academy Sectional may submit an abstract to MAS by March 30. In addition, the author and title of these abstracts must be emailed to me (cchauck@mcps.k12.mt.us).

Please follow the instructions on the Call for Papers document (pdf).

Students who would like to enter the paper competition should submit their papers to me electronically no later than March 6, 2012 (deadline extended). The paper(s) should be of standard scientific format: Title page, abstract, acknowledgments, table of contents, introduction, methods, data/results, discussion, & references. A sample paper is available on the MAS website. All students who submit papers will be scheduled for a 10 minute talk. Students who submit the top papers will be scheduled to give longer presentations in the Senior Academy Sectional.

Please submit student paper(s) to:

Carmen Hauck
Big Sky High School

Many high school students have participated in this program since its initiation, over 20 years ago, and have found it to be an excellent experience. I know that the senior members of the Academy look forward to the student’s involvement. Please consider encouraging participation by your students.

Carmen Hauck,

Director, Montana Junior Academy of Sciences
