posted in: Past Event


This annual conference is hosted by the Northwestern Suburban Integration School District and attendees include students from the cities of Anoka, Brooklyn Center, Buffalo, Hanover, Montrose, Elk River, Fridley, Mounds View, Osseo, and Rockford to attend the conference. The theme of the conference was “Students Today…Leaders Tomorrow” and was intended to teach students teamwork, leadership skills, workplace values, and encourage students to enroll in post-secondary education. The conference united a diverse group of approximately 400 high school students, who participated in hands-on workshops, competitive events, and a college and career fair. Blue U volunteers from Kimley-Horn hosted a booth in the college and career fair and promoted and talked to students about future STEM careers.
