This year our emphasis will be on the power of the written word to serve as a vehicle to drive positive social change and provide a healthy outlet for personal expression. Students will accomplish this through a series of speakers and workshops stressing the importance of writing and how it enables individuals to reach their personal and career paths. All students are potential leaders in a bi‐literate world.
General conference participants are invited to come see what our student leaders are working on and talking about.
