Convention Service Project

Each year the state officer team selects a Convention Service project that take places or culminates at state convention.

2019 = “backPACK for Success”

This year we will be packing backpacks for our "backPACK for Success" project! Each district is tasked with bringing as many items in their bubble (see map) as they possibly can! Additional items to be brought are: backpacks, reusable water bottles, calculators, lunch boxes, and binders. 
Once we have these materials, the backpacks will be filled and will be distributed to our five drop locations to be given to local Washington youth to help make their start to school this fall a little easier! We hope your chapter, district, and community can get involved and bring as many items as you possibly can to State Convention this May.
