Thank you for your interest in presenting at the Minnesota Council for the Social Studies Conference in 2020. The conference will take place at the Mankato Civic Center on Monday, March 2, 2020.

MCSS is seeking proposals for high-quality presentations in order to offer a full day of break-out sessions. Sessions will be 50 minutes in length. Presentation time slots will be allocated to provide a balanced schedule for attendees.

Session topics should focus on the social studies disciplines, or methods and teaching strategies, and relate to the theme "Keeping Civil Discourse in Focus."  Priority will be given to proposals which address specific Minnesota Social Studies Standards.

All presenters, including co-presenters, who are accepted must register to attend the conference, but will receive the discounted presenter rate of $90.

Exhibitors who also present: Exhibitor fee replaces the required conference registration.

Should your session be accepted, please be aware that you, as lead presenter, are responsible for notifying co-presenters regarding the status of this proposal--including date, time, and location.
