----- Forwarded by Asha Weinstein/SJSU on 11/15/2005 11:07 AM -----
The Transportation Planning Division of the American Planning Association is looking for outstanding student papers on current transportation planning or policy issues. Two awards will be presented: one for the best master's student paper with a $600 prize and another for the best undergraduate paper with a $400 prize. Papers must have been originally written by a single author for a class in an accredited planning program in a US college or university during calendar years 2004 and 2005. Master's theses, terminal professional reports, and student group projects are not eligible. A paper may be submitted only once; papers may not be revised and resubmitted a second time. Papers by multiple authors will not be accepted.
The program chair, a faculty member, or the AICP liaison may nominate a paper by indicating when and for what course the paper was prepared; students may not nominate their own paper. Doctoral students are not eligible for this award. Each accredited program may submit only two master's and two undergraduate papers.
Papers may be no more than 20 pages long, including references. Table, maps and other diagrams may supplement the 20 pages of text but not exceed 5 pages. Papers must be double-spaced with margins of at least 1 inch and a font of at least 12 point. Title page should include student name, address, degree program, date when paper was originally submitted, and phone number. No name or other form of identification should be included on the pages with the text of the paper (e.g., a header or footer should only include the page number and paper title).
The deadline for receipt of the papers is Wednesday, February 1, 2006. Papers will be accepted via e-mail; .pdf is the preferred format; please submit the title page separately from the paper. Printed copies of papers will also be accepted; papers will not be accepted via FAX. No late papers will be accepted.
