Star Search 2018
Each year ANPD holds a Star Search competition at our Annual Convention. The purpose of Star Search is to encourage aspiring speakers to compete for an opportunity to present a concurrent session at the next annual convention. Star Search is a great opportunity for novice speakers to develop their professional skills!
The call for Star Search participants is now open! For 2018, four convention attendees will be selected to participate in Star Search on Thursday, July 19 from 4:45 – 5:45 PM. Each participant has 10 minutes to give a brief presentation that is judged by members of the ANPD Convention Content Planning Committee (CPC) and the audience. The CPC score constitutes 75% of the total score and the audience score constitutes 25% of the total. The participant who receives the highest score is invited to present a 60-minute concurrent session at the 2019 Annual Convention in Phoenix, AZ (March 31-April 4, 2019) and receives one complimentary convention registration. The deadline to submit your abstract is April 2, 2018 at 11:55 pm CST.
