An abstract helps orient your reader to your Division III. Here are a few helpful resources for writing an abstract.
From the Commonwealth Honors Program at UMass: https://www.honors.umass.edu/capstone-experience-guidelines-abstract-writing
From the University of Wisconsin-Madison, examples of abstracts from different fields (including the arts): http://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/presentations_abstracts_examples.html
From OWL Purdue: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/656/01/
Make sure your Div III has a title page! It is helpful to your faculty, but is especially important if you are sharing your work beyond the committee. You can download a Word document that can act as a template here: DIVIII_TitlePage
