We recently requested that questions be submitted for the 2021 Academy Cup. We have received several so far, but people are not following the necessary guidelines. We cannot accept questions that are section-specific. The questions should be general knowledge and not apply to a specific section within the AAFS. We also ask that you please follow the format that is described HERE for submitting a question.

Helpful hints:

  • Include entertaining graphics, photos, videos, or audio in either the question and/or the answer.
  • Questions should be visually entertaining and educational.
  • Have the question and answer sets peer-reviewed and include the name of the reviewer.
  • Multiple choice questions should have three or four short answers maximum.
  • The shorter, the better.
  • Make them fun.

The deadline for submissions is August 15, but send them now while it’s fresh in your mind. Please send all submissions to Academy Cup Chair Laura Liptai at: liptai@biomedicalforensics.com.
