To be considered for presentation at the

2023 Southern Region Agricultural Education Conference

February 2 - 4, 2023—Oklahoma City, OK


Poster abstracts which report a completed idea, research, 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.

Poster abstracts must be authored or co-authored by AAAE members. Please note that you will be unable to login the poster submission system if you are not an AAAE member. Membership is verified using the Membership Directory on the AAAE site. Please check your membership status several weeks in advance of the submission deadline.

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 implement the research process. Research should 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 Southern Region Conference in Oklahoma City, OK. Evaluation of both poster types – innovative and research – will be completed using a “People’s Choice” format.


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


  • Introduction/need for innovation or idea
