The deadline for submission is April 1, 2019

The Mid-Continent Regional Science Association announces the Student Paper Competition for our 2019 conference (June 4-6) in Madison, Wisconsin. All students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree programs as of January 1, 2019 are eligible. Student papers dealing with all aspects of regional development, including cultural, physical and economic processes, are welcome. The first place winner will receive $1,000 and the M. Jarvin Emerson Award. The winning entry will also be considered for publication in the Association’s journal, The Journal of Regional Analysis & Policy. The competition winner is expected to attend the conference to present the paper. The cash award is intended to offset travel costs. The winner will be notified by April 10, 2019 to ensure timely travel arrangements can be made. Inability to attend the conference to present the winning entry will require forfeiture of the cash prize and publication opportunity.

All contestants with papers suitable for presentation will be invited to attend the conference. Notification of acceptance for presentation of the submitted paper will be by April 10, 2019. Only papers authored solely by students (i.e., no faculty co-authored papers) will be eligible for the competition and resulting publication. A paper submission implies agreement the winning paper will be published in The Journal of Regional Analysis & Policy. Due to the publication opportunity that is part of this competition, submitted papers should not be concurrently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Papers must be submitted electronically by e-mail. In addition to the electronic copy of the paper, competitors also must mail, e-mail, or fax a copy of their student ID and the publication agreement form.
