As a student representative, I thoroughly enjoyed the convention and found it to be a positive experience.
We learned how to make healthy learning environments for LGBTQ+ students and students of color. We also learned how to be active students in our PTA community and how to recruit other students.
Our presenters and vendors were very open and heard our thoughts and answered our questions. They also made it fun for us, holding parties and fun events and giving out raffles and fun prizes, one of which my mom won! But my favorite part was that it let us students, who usually don’t feel like they have a voice, vote and be a part of important PTA decisions. I wouldn’t mind coming back again and again.
