A Successful Conference 💯

During the conference, Washington students enthusiastically uploaded their photos as well as participated in the app-driven scavenger hunt, collaborating with other chapters to find the Washington and PNW pins.

We are proud to highlight that this year Washington sponsored two memorable meals for our advisors, students, and guests. On Monday, attendees enjoyed a full Southern comfort meal, received Washington swag, and were inspired by our state officers. On Friday, after the NLSC award session, Washington attendees gathered for a chili and baked potato bar to celebrate the outstanding achievements of our students and delegates.
