Each spring, more than 2,500 students, teachers, parents, and community and business leaders attend the EAST Initiative's largest event of the year, the national EAST Conference. This three-day exhibition style event celebrates and challenges EAST students to learn and perform at the highest levels. Conference is an opportunity for attendees to network with other students, share stories and ideas, and showcase projects that make a difference in their communities.
