Part I of this month’s update will focus on paper preparation. Part II will cover paper submission in more detail.
First, thank you to those schools who submitted their VJAS School Membership Applications and Membership Fees by the January 15 deadline. Second (for those schools who have not yet joined VJAS for the current year), if your school has students who plan to submit VJAS papers later this month, we strongly recommend that your school join VJAS as soon as possible! This will allow time for our office to generate the VJAS Membership Certification letter to the Head Sponsor that includes the school’s VJAS School Number. The VJAS School Membership Application can be found in Appendix B (http://www.vjas.org/rules--guidelines-forms.html).
Reminder: The VJAS Paper Submission Deadline is Wednesday, February 24th!
VJAS Paper Preparation:
Below are some main highlights of the paper preparation and submission procedures. As always, please refer to our Handbook and Appendices for complete, detailed information. These documents may be accessed at http://www.vjas.org/rules--guidelines-forms.html.
We would also like to remind that we have very detailed specifications for the structure of papers. Please refer to the Handbook section that has the full requirements for the papers as well as information regarding assembly of the paper (Handbook pages 24-28).
VJAS Paper Submission:
Stay tuned for Part II of the Sponsor’s Update later this month.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.
We greatly appreciate all that you do and look forward to processing student papers!
