Plan on Joining Sigma Tau Delta in Las Vegas


Our judges’ decisions about the submissions for the 2020 Convention have been made. Everyone who submitted a paper should have received an email from englishconvention@niu.edu today. Thank you to all of those who submitted; and to those who have been invited to present, let me offer our congratulations!

If you received such an invitation, your first task should be to complete the participant confirmation form. You get to this form by clicking on the presenter confirmation form link in our recent email. Click here for a complete list of accepted papers (listed by school).

For those who were not accepted this time around, you received my personal invitation to sign up to chair a session—an important job at convention, and one that ensures your name appears in the program as a participant. Again, follow the instructions on the Chairs web page in order to complete the Session Chair Volunteer form.

We have also sent out a call for moderators today. In the meantime, information about this important role is available on the Moderators web page.

Complete information about how to take full advantage of the convention appears at englishconvention.org. There, you will learn more about

On behalf of the more than 119 judges who evaluated over 850 submissions, I applaud the hard work and tremendous potential we saw this year. Should you have questions, contact us via email at englishconvention@niu.edu. I encourage you to join us at the 2020 Convention in Las Vegas!
