Call for Proposals
The one-room country school is considered an American icon. Country schoolhouses represent treasured American values: sound education, simplicity, quality, and self-reliance. Groups and individuals are working in various ways to preserve these structures, create programs in them, and produce photographic documentaries about them. Other efforts taking place across America and around the world are the formation of discussion groups, historical research, and creating reenactments.
Conference proposals relating to all the areas involving country school preservation are now being solicited by the CSAA for the 2014 Conference to be held in St. Joseph, MO.
Proposals can take the form of traditional presentations, poster sessions, panel discussions, photographic presentations, artistic and antique displays, re-enactments, as well as video and Internet presentations.
Ideas to support preservation efforts such as fund raising, grant writing, and website development are also encouraged.
Presentations should last about 45 minutes. Topics may be combined to increase the number and variety of ideas that can be shared. Most forms of technology can be provided to support your presentation.
We encourage early proposals!
Proposals should be submitted by March 1, 2014 to:
Gloria Hawkins at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail at:
