Sessions will be designed around six skills-based tracks. They include Design, General (Nuts & Bolts), Leadership, Multimedia, Photojournalism and Writing. (Don't feel boxed in by these categories; there is a lot of room for creativity!) Sessions last 50 minutes.

The conference is an excellent platform for students to share their knowledge and best practices with their peers while gaining valuable public speaking experience.
