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.
