The David L. Weis Student Paper Presentation Award
The David L. Weis Memorial Student Paper Presentation Award is given by the Midcontinent Region of The Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality. It is given at the regional meeting, to a Midcontinent region student, to acknowledge the quality of the presentation made during that meeting. The award consists of a certificate and a one-year paid student membership in SSSS. In the event that the student is about to graduate, only the student rate portion of the SSSS membership shall be paid for the following year. Up to two students may be awarded the award at any given meeting. In the event that there are two awards given, the levels of the students should be taken into consideration, so that both more and less advanced students are recognized.
David L. Weis was a friend, colleague, teacher, and sexologist. He was a professor of Family and Consumer Sciences at Bowling Green State University and a former Midcontinent President. In the words of Ira Reiss, David Weis was "...one of America's leading sexologists and sociologists."
