César E. Chávez

Leadership Conference

2013 Conference Update

The César E. Chávez Leadership Conference planning committee would like to thank you for your continued support and participation. With the assistance of all the participating schools and district representatives this conference has grown to over 1500 attendees representing 65 different schools throughout western Oregon.

This annual event is a forum for Latino youth, grades 9-12 to meet community leaders, take part in leadership and cultural workshops and visit with career and college exhibitors. In addition to the conference, the student art, essay and poetry contests and the college scholarship competition offer your students significant ways to engage with the spirit and legacy of César E. Chávez.

As we prepare for our 23nd annual conference on Friday, March 08, 2013 at Western Oregon University, we would like to provide you with an update of the planning process.

• Flyers for the Art, Essay and Poetry contests, college scholarship packets, and Timbers Reportero Program are now available online.
