Posted: Feb 28, 2018

This email was sent to all state advisors on February 28, 2018

Greetings Student Council Advisors,

Here are the latest IASC Updates for the week of February 26 - March 2

Keynote Speaker Opportunity
One of our keynote speakers for the IASC State Convention, Brandon Lee White, is offering to speak at Illinois schools at a discounted rate while he is in the area.

Attached is a flyer for his "Own It Day" program, which is his most comprehensive program.

If there are any schools within 2 hours of Springfield (contact him if you are further away) that are interested in having him speak on May 1st or 2nd, he can offer an additional discount. All schools can receive additional discounts through multiple bookings within the district.

See the attached flyer, or contact Brandon directly through his website at www.brandonleewhite.com.

Pillar Awards

Nominations are being accepted for the IASC Pillar Awards, which recognize student leaders in the areas of Leadership, Community Service, School Pride, and Dedication. More information, and the nomination form, is available on our website: https://illinoisstuco.org/news/article?Title=2018PillarAwardNominations102. All nominations are due by March 21.

State Service Project

To simplify the donation process, you no longer have to contact the IASC President to obtain a bag tag; instead you can download the tags from our website: https://illinoisstuco.org/Content/ServiceProject/BagTags.pdf. Print and cut out one of the tags, and place it inside the backpack before you donate it.

Please remember, after donating your backpacks, to complete the Service Project Participation Form (https://illinoisstuco.org/Content/ServiceProject/ValidationForm.pdf), which is due by April 15.

For more information on the State Service Project, visit https://illinoisstuco.org/about/serviceproject; or email president@illinoisstuco.org.

State Convention

The deadline to register for State Convention is March 21. To cut down on paper waste, registration is being conducted online this year. For more information, or to register, see https://illinoisstuco.org/news/article?Title=2018StateConvention98. Questions should be directed to convention@illinoisstuco.org.

We look forward to seeing you in Springfield on May 3-5, 2018!
