Call for Posters

to be considered for presentation at the

2018 Western Region Agricultural Education Conference

September 17-19, 2018 – Boise, ID

 Poster abstracts which report a completed idea, research, concept, or innovation that have not been previously reported at at any AAAE Regional Agricultural Education Research Conference or the National AAAE Research Conference will be considered for acceptance. All abstract submissions will be peer reviewed.

Poster abstracts must be authored or co-authored by authors from the Western Region of AAAE. If you are unsure of your membership status, you can email Marilyn Trefz (trefz.2@osu.edu) to check your membership status several weeks in advance of the submission deadline. Posters without at least one current AAAE member will be rejected.

Two poster session categories (types) will be accepted -- Innovative Idea (teaching, process and products) and Research. Innovative Idea posters must be a new idea or the creative modification of an existing idea. Research posters must be related to a problem, demonstrate a need for research, and address the national agricultural education research agenda. The innovative idea must be implemented or research must be completed prior to submission.

Poster narratives in each category must be of potential regional or national significance focusing in the areas of teaching, communications, extension and/or leadership. A peer review evaluation process will be used based on the established evaluation forms.

Once accepted, authors will be notified and posters will be presented at the AAAE Conference in Boise, ID.  Evaluation of both poster types – innovative and research – will be completed using a “People’s Choice” format.

The poster abstract should have these heading/sections when appropriate:


  • Introduction/need for innovation or idea
  • How it works/methodology/program phases/steps
  • Results to date/implications
  • Future plans/advice to others
  •  Costs/resources needed
  • References
  • Introduction/need for research
  • Conceptual or theoretical framework
  • Methodology
  • Results/findings
  • Conclusions
  • Implications/recommendations/ impact on profession
  • References
