2020 OHSAA Foundation Student Leadership Conference

OHSAA 2020 Student Leadership Conference

The agenda this year will include an all new theme – “Visionary Leadership.”  This year we will bounce off the new decade with the theme of Visionary Leadership (2020), bringing content that focuses on the clear values of leadership, speaking skills, and conflict resolution. Youth are our future influencers, and it is important we equip them with the necessary skills to help them overcome the ever-changing challenges they face in the world today. 
Conference Outline: Each speaker will have approximately 30-45 minutes of speaking time on stage with time to set aside for interviews with TV news, local papers and photo opportunities. 
Date and Location: The one-day conference will be held at the Ohio Union on the campus of The Ohio State University on Tuesday, October 6, 2020. 
Registration: Registration details will not be available until August. 
Participants: Member schools are encouraged to send student-athletes that demonstrate or have potential for leadership roles in your school. Each school group must be accompanied by at least one adult supervisor. The first 1500 applicants will be accepted free of charge for this year’s conference. Student-athletes in grades 9-11 for the 2020 fall semester are eligible to register.
Video: Videos will be filmed during the sessions of the conference. We encourage participating schools to bring their school colors (jerseys, banners, jackets, etc.) for the video. This will be a fun way to get the day started and it will post it on the OHSAA Student Leadership Conference web page.
