Call for Proposals: The Eighth Annual Student Leadership Conference
The eighth annual Student Leadership Conference entitled, "Igniting the Spark, Focusing the Flame" will be held Monday, March 9, 2015, at the Hylton Performing Arts Center, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The Student Leadership Conference is expected to draw 1,500 high school and eighth grade middle school students, and will give them the opportunity to build their leadership skills.
The conference is designed to inspire students to continue seeking out and accepting leadership responsibilities as part of their contribution to society; to increase awareness of current and emerging leadership challenges in a variety of settings; and to develop a network of students in Prince William County Public Schools with leadership potential.
We are now accepting workshop proposals.
Please submit your proposal to Maria Burgos-Singleton
