The Great Ideas For Teaching (GIFT) program is returning to this summer’s AEJMC convention in Toronto, co-sponsored by the Small Programs Interest Group and the Scholastic Journalism Division. Attached is the call for proposals and an entry form for those wishing to participate.

GIFT has historically been one of the most popular sessions at the conference. The Top 25 GIFT ideas, as selected by a panel of judges from within AEJMC, will be presented at a poster session in Toronto, with the top idea winning the Grand Prize Award for 2019.

Instructions for submitting proposals are attached. Questions may be directed to me at this email address or to Jim Sernoe of Midwestern State at

The deadline for submissions for the 2019 GIFT competition is April 30, 2019, at 11:59 pm  CDT.
