Please login to make a submission or review a submission. 


To be considered for presentation at the

2023 North Central Agricultural Education Conference

September 27 - September 29, 2022 in Brookings, SD


*Research posters are now submitted with the paper review process. Refer to that call for more information.

Innovative poster abstracts which report a completed idea, concept, or innovation that have not been previously reported 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.

Unique to North Central AAAE – Please read carefully!

One poster session category (type) will be accepted with this review procedure-- Innovative Idea (teaching, process and products). Innovative Idea posters must be a new idea or the creative modification of an existing idea. The innovative idea must be implemented prior to submission.

Poster narratives 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. Evaluation will be based upon the poster abstract, design and display, presentation, communication of presenter, significance to the profession, and innovation of idea. Once accepted, posters will be presented at the North Central Region Conference. 


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



  • Submit files in Acrobat (PDF) format. Word files are subject to automatic rejection.
  • Abstract must be a maximum of two pages long plus up to one additional page of references.  The abstract must include the title of the poster as the first line of page 1.
  • The type of poster (Innovative) should be typed in the upper right-hand corner.
  • The maximum submission length is 3 pages (2-page abstract, 1-page references).
  • Document must be formatted in 12-point Times New Roman font, single spaced, with 1” margins.  A word template is available on the website. SEE WEBSITE FOR FORMATTING DETAILS. (
  • To facilitate a blind review, the author’s name or other significant identifying information should not appear in the two-page abstract narrative.
  • Poster abstracts not conforming to the required submission guidelines or format may be rejected prior to the review process.
  • No cover page on first submission. The author information will be entered in the submission form when uploading the narrative. (Make sure ALL authors are listed on submission form.)
