Happy New Year!
It’s hard to believe that another outstanding year has come and gone already! 2015 was filled with many opportunities, connections, and adventures. Looking back, our year has been filled with busy schedules spreading the message of student voice! Let’s recap quick: -IowaSLI hosted four events
StuCamp in Webster City & Bettendorf
We Are One Rally at the Iowa Capitol
RISE 2015 in Waukee
StuCamp National via Google UnHangout
-We launched a team of 27 student leaders representing 15 diverse school districts across Iowa. -The student leadership team presented at or video conferenced on 35 occasions with students, educators, and community leaders. -#iastuchat had 1,049,155 impressions from weekly discussions on Twitter -We interacted with adults and students at events including EdCampIowa, 1:1 Institute, IASL, Our Kids Summer Institute, ITEC, and ICLC. None of this could have happened without your support and believing in empowering students. Here’s to continued growth in 2016. Keep using your voice, the world needs you. Ian & the IowaSLI team
