Student Paper Competition

The paper competition allows undergraduate and graduate students, either individual or teams, to showcase their original applied and clinical work in a traditional academic forum.  

Papers should be 15-25 pages and should be modelled after academic journal articles with an abstract, introduction/background, methodology, findings and discussion sections. Papers must be explicitly applied or clinical in nature.  The top 5 paper submissions will be required to present their papers in a five minute virtual presentation.

Winners of the paper submission will receive next year’s membership to AACS, a cash price at the end of the conference and the opportunity to have mentorship to publish the winning paper in the Journal of Applied Social Sciences.  Any questions, reach out to the AACS Student Committee Chair, Sara Cumming at:
