The annual National Student Council Conference is a unique opportunity for student council members and advisers from across the country to sharpen their leadership skills and build their peer networks. National Student Council (NatStuCo) member schools receive special discounts to attend.

This year’s theme, Forging Student Leaders, is designed to light the fire within students, advisers, and administrators as they connect with their peers and discover new ways to enhance their leadership abilities.

The 2019 National Student Council Conference will be hosted by South Fayette High School in McDonald, PA, June 24–26 where middle level and high school student leaders and advisers from across the country will convene for this motivational three-day event.

Exhibits & Sponsorships

The 2019 NatStuCo Conference will provide a great opportunity to get your organization in front of thousands of students and school leaders.

We welcome groups who represent products and services appropriate to middle level and high school campuses. In past years, sponsors and exhibitors included fundraising programs; the armed services; universities and colleges; and scholarship and community service organizations.

Official conference sponsor benefits include, but are not limited to:

  • Designation as an official conference sponsor.
  • Special booth designation.
  • Two customizable benefits to meet your specific company needs, as approved by NatStuCo.

In addition, your company’s brand will appear on the 2019 NatStuCo Conference website, signs located in designated areas during the event, and on marketing materials being sent to more than 8,000 student councils. À la carte sponsorship opportunities are also available. Together with NatStuCo, you can forge the next generation of student leaders.
