To submit for an award, please submit before the March 17 deadline.

The Whalen Submission Form is now open!

The Whalen submission form is open from January 4, 2021 - March 17, 2021. If you plan to submit your project for an award, you must submit by 11:59PM EST on March 17, 2021.

Please see the Whalen FAQs for detailed instructions about how to write your abstract for submission.

Sample abstracts and judging rubrics are provided to guide the development of the abstract and presentation.

Abstracts should be characterized by an objective, scholarly tone (i.e. not first person).

When submitting your abstract, please save the document as a .pdf using the following file naming convention:
Last Name_Department       | Ex.       Taylor_Computer Science.pdf

If you're interested in presenting your research, you must submit an Abstract to Present (250–500 words).

If you plan to present your research and want to be considered for an award, you must submit the Abstract to be Considered for an Award (500–700 words).

If you plan to present creative work (visual, media, and performing arts), you must submit the Abstract for Visual, Media, and Performing Arts (use the same abstract just to present or to be considered for an award).
