Guidelines for Poster Submissions

It is a pleasure to invite you to submit a presentation or poster for FHSA 2020 Annual Conference. The conference is organized by the Florida Head Start Association and will take place March 4-6, 2020 in Orlando, FL at the DoubleTree by Hilton at the Entrance to Universal Orlando. This conference focuses on providing professional development to Head Start Program Managers, Directors, Staff, Teachers, Parents, and Policy Council Members.  This year's conference theme is Head Start Leaders in Quality & Inclusion. Presentations submitted should align with our conference theme and the particular focus areas listed above. Each focus area is a clickable link providing you a more in-depth look into what we are seeking in a presentation or poster within that theme.  As you begin to think about your presentation or poster submission, be sure it provides content in the birth to five scope. We are looking for presentations that will stimulate, innovate, and engage Early Head Start, Head Start, Child Care Partnerships, Migrant Head Start Programs, and Early Childhood educators administering programs in Florida.
