Participants will set up trifolds, display boards, or other physical media on a half-table display to demonstrate the good work that they have accomplished in their communities. Conference attendees and guest judges will vote on their favorite displays during lunch, and awards will be given out at the closing of the conference for a variety of categories. Show off your neighborhood pride and inspire others with your great work! To register, please read rules below and contact Erik Hasstedt at ehasstedt@safest.org.
