Submission Guidelines

The West River History Conference is open to all individuals and the public. Paper titles are welcome from amateur and professional historians alike, and especially sought from students from middle school through graduate school.

Paper topics are not limited to the conference theme. Any topic relating to the history of the region is welcome as the subject of a presentation.

Topics must be submitted with a title, brief description, and biographical sketch of the presenter by September 10 in order to be included in the program.  Please note:  only the paper topic is due in August.  Your completed paper is NOT due until the conference in October. Please include the presenter’s name, address, phone number and e-mail address. Papers should be limited to twenty to twenty-five minutes in length. Presenters planning to use electronic media of any kind must include this information in the original query. Papers must be double-spaced and contain research documentation.

Presenters need to submit three copies of their papers or an electronic copy for the judges. Papers without appropriate documentation (footnotes or endnotes plus a bibliography) will not be considered for prizes.

The collected papers of the conference are published annually in a permanent bound volume available for purchase by schools, libraries, museums and other interested parties. Prizes for the best papers in adult and student categories will be awarded.
