The Shape Delaware annual convention is designed to provide Shape Delaware members the opportunity to share instructional ideas with their colleagues.
1. Submit each proposal on a separate form. Once received, an acknowledgement will be sent to the lead presenter.
2. Incomplete proposals will not be considered.
3. Delaware presenters must be current members of Shape Delaware. Out-of-state presenters must be current members of their state Shape America association.
4. No presenter will be paid or received an honorarium, unless written notification and confirmation has been made by the Shape Delaware office.
5. Each presenter must register and pay convention fees unless written notification and confirmation has been received stating that these fees were being waived by the Shape Delaware office.
6. Shape Delaware Convention presentations are for the purpose of sharing information that assists members to fulfill their roles as professionals. It is inappropriate for presenters to use presentations to directly solicit sales of products or service contracts, unless that privilege has been contracted through the Shape Delaware office in the form of an agreement. Presenters who use their presentations as a platform to directly solicit sales of products or service contracts will not be allowed to present at any future Shape Delaware conferences.
7. Presenters must provide their own computers, LCD projectors, and physical education equipment.
8. Please do not submit a proposal unless you are prepared to actually make a presentation and will be able to appear during the convention day.

If music is a part of your program, you must include a list of the music (song title and artist). All information must be properly referenced (author, year, title, publisher, city). Because of copyright laws, the handout information must be written in your own words and with your own illustrations. Please be advised your colleagues could reproduce the material provided. Therefore, we are not accepting any copyrighted material. Submit the handout to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 17.
