You can relate your original work or the shared work to the Phi Beta Kappa motto "love of learning is the guide of life" or another motto that you resonate with. You are welcome to participate, ask questions, and vote via poll even if you choose not to present. Awards will be given for Best Presentation and Most Creative Interpretation.
