All graduate and undergraduate students in Tennessee programs related to TAHPERD are encouraged to submit Poster Presentation Proposals to Dr. Todd Layne via email ( by September 26, 2015, to be a part of our 46th Annual TAHPERD Convention, held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Murfreesboro, TN. Posters should be based on research accomplished by health/sport/physical activity-related degree-seeking students which expands, guides, and enriches our profession. In the past we have had posters based on research that TAHPERD members were able to learn about and supplement their base of knowledge in all of our content areas. Poster presentations will likely take place on Monday, October 26th with the author(s) standing at the poster to answer questions from viewing members. Posters will continue to be displayed on provided easels until the end of Monday’s programs. Authors will not need to stand by the poster during this time. By October 2nd, students will receive an email communicating submission status and additional instructions regarding the presentation (e.g., poster size, scheduled presentation time).

Submission requirements are as follows:

1.  Title and brief abstract (150 word limit – Word doc) explaining the problem, method, results, and conclusions.

2.  Name, university, degree program and expected graduation date.

3. Contact information – email address and phone.

4.  Must be current TAHPERD member and formally register for the convention.
