Junior and Middle School State Conference & Competition Program

Over 100,000 Wisconsin teens have experienced the energy and education of the WASC State Conference since it’s inception. Join us in Madison for a weekend of learning, inspiration and fun!

During the two day conference, attendees can also look forward to:


Attendees are able to choose from a wide variety of breakout Sectionals & Super Sectionals that cover everything from school spirit ideas to volunteering to college planning. Interested in presenting a Sectional? Check back here for opportunities.


The State Conference provides a great opportunity to meet students from other schools — and to connect with friends made at previous events.


A constant favorite of the conference, Sunday evening closes with a special session of motivational stories, inspiring words & music, words of wisdom from the Host Schools, and the wide-reaching Glow of Leadership.


Sunday evening’s agenda begins with a semi-formal banquet and awards ceremony where the WASC honors Advisors of the Year, Special Award Recipients, and Student Achievements.


The music will be pumping and the movie reels will be spinning as teens take over their space to play games, chat with new friends, and dance the night away to one of our very favorite DJ’s.


WASC’s six regions will gather to discuss business and elect officers for the upcoming year.


The weekend’s learning isn’t just for the students. Advisors will have the chance to network, learn, and discuss issues facing today’s co-curricular activities, as well as learn about the WASC and all it offers.
