2020 NASW-Oklahoma State Conference, "Social Workers Generations Strong"
March 13 & 14 | Midwest City



Student Poster Presentations


NASW-Oklahoma is proud to promote the efforts of social work students and provide an outlet for students to share what is currently happening in the profession. Poster presentations are an alternative to the traditional presentation method. Less formal than a paper presentation, poster sessions highlight the authors’ work in a brief visual and interactive format. The success of a poster presentation relies on the quality of the content and the effectiveness of the presentation style.


Deadline to submit is Student Poster Proposals is  February 14, 2020


The NASW-Oklahoma Conference Planning Committee is seeking proposals from STUDENTS for our Student Poster Presentation session at this year’s conference! This is a great opportunity for students to gain professional experience contributing to our knowledge base, actively participate in the organization and build a professional resume!
