The VSCA State Office, the Officer Schools and Region Representative Schools, and the entire Advisory Committee are excited to welcome your school to the

96th annual VSCA Convention!

March 17-18, 2023

at Massaponax High School

VSCA is excited to announce that our annual convention this March will be a two-day event featuring many of the activities our convention used to have in pre-covid times. We kick off on Friday afternoon at Massaponax High School with region meetings and general sessions, then head into a special evening with the catered VSCA Awards Banquet followed by a Leadership Carnival.  Saturday features keynote speaker Heather Schultz, Learning Labs, election of new officers and region representatives, a session with the Virginia Board of Education, a pep rally, and more.

The officers, Advisory Committee members, and host school are working hard to create an exciting leadership event designed to enable members to share ideas, network, and build stronger leadership skills to take back to their home schools. Use the information linked below to help you prepare to get the most from this amazing experience full of learning with hundreds of the best student leaders and their advisers from across the Commonwealth.

We can't wait to see you in March!

Carrying on VSCA Traditions

Get ready to participate in two time-honored VSCA convention traditions!

Fringies: How to make them

Friendly Fringies are a tradition at VSCA that provide an easy way to break the ice when meeting someone new. We'll modify the practice this year to keep everyone safer and use fist or elbow bumps instead of hugs, but you'll still get to swap fringies. Check out this video for how to make them. 

School Explosion: How to create one

School explosions are a way to introduce your delegation to the other schools at convention. Make up a short 30-second cheer or chant and be ready to explode with energy during the opening general session.
