Thursday Wrap-Up

SHW 1   SHW 3

Yesterday we finished the second round of workshops! We highlighted Diversity and Public Speaking and Facilitation yesterday, and here’s what we did in Advocacy!

Advocacy: Delegates will define advocacy and understand the importance of being a student advocate, identify techniques for advocating effectively, explore the different roles of motivation and empowerment as tools for advocacy, understand the components of an Advocacy Strategy Plan and analyze their order, and practice advocating for a cause or issue by creating an Advocacy Strategy plan.

Committees are well on their way to completing their tasks. In particular, the Talent Show committee knocked it out of the park by presenting an amazing showcase with all kinds of talents!

In REALITY, The Conductors presented their project on arts funding to Eliot Pfanstiehl and Monica Jeffries from Strathmore, a world-class music and arts center in Montgomery County. All other groups finalized last details as their presentations are today. And in group meeting, we continued the fun and games that forge bonds among the delegates – bonds that will last far beyond Saturday.

We’ll see you all tomorrow at Gibson Center for the Arts – the same building where check-in took place. The closing ceremony is from 10:45-11:30am, and dismissal will be immediately following.
