WSKW Call for Student Papers/Posters

The Western Society for Kinesiology & Wellness (WSKW) has a long history of engaging students. Their conference each year has sessions specifically for students. In one of three categories you can submit a proposals to do a poster presentation that
a) is a critique of one article on a topic in our field (very manageable),
b) presents a review of literature in a topic area (a bit more challenging), or
c) presents findings from original research (appropriate for undergrad and grad student research projects).
The conference is October 9-11, 2019 at Harrah’s in Reno, Nevada. Conference registration is only $50 for students – covers all 3 days. This is a great opportunity to get experience presenting at a professional conference, strengthen your resume, and begin networking with students from other campuses. Here is the link where you’ll find information and samples to follow.

The deadline for submitting work is June 15th 2019.

For more information specific to student presentations at WSKW, please contact me or Dr. Guillermo Escalante (Student Presentation Coordinator) at:

Do consider submitting a proposal to the conference.
