Once again this has been a busy spring with exciting meetings in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, AAHPERD and Chicago, Illinois, AERA. As always many of us returned to our institutions having participated in stimulating conversation with professional colleagues and the opportunity to interact both informally and through more organized programs. While in Chicago, Illinois, Joannie Hallas of the University of Manitoba was announced as the winner of the JTPE Metzler-Freedman Exemplary Paper Award for her paper, Engaging Alienated Youth in Physical Education: An Alternative Program with Lessons for the Traditional Class.
