We consider the existence of positive solutions for a class of second-order multi-point boundary value problem with p-Laplacian on time scales. By using the well-known Krasnosel'ski's fixed-point theorem, some new existence criteria for positive solutions of the boundary value problem are presented. As an application, an example is given to illustrate the main results.
