Young Scholar Award
The Art Broten Young Scholar Award is one of the concrete ways WSKW supports faculty as they launch the scholarship component of their careers. A call for Young Scholars papers is made annually by the Young Scholar Award Coordinator. Submitted papers are peer-evaluated and award winners are selected. Time is allotted during the conference for selected young scholars to present (required) their papers. The papers can be issue-based (e.g., white paper) or original research.
Submitted papers should be 5-7 double-spaced pages in length excluding the title page, abstract and references, and should be prepared following APA style formatting (7th Edition). You will be asked to submit a brief vita and a title page with author information in addition to the main paper. The main paper should include: 1) title of paper (no authors listed); 2) abstract (250 words or less); 3) paper using section headings: Introduction; Methods or headings to fit a descriptive-type paper; Results or headings to fit a descriptive type paper; Discussion; Conclusion; and References. Tables and/or figures should appear in the body of the paper. Submitted papers should not already be published.
As part of the evaluation process, the following areas will be rated: (a) original contribution, (b) clear purpose, (c) clear methodology or logical arguments, (d) sound data analyses or supported arguments, (e) conclusion and implications, (f) accurate grammar, tone, use of English, (g) sound writing (sentence/paragraph structure), (h) use of current (7th Edition) APA Style, and (i) relevance of tables and/or figures.
