This is what student leadership is all about! Student Showcase Presentations allow for students to present the very best in programming currently being executed in your school. These student-delivered presentations allow for the unique opportunity to not only showcase your incredible programs, but also fine tune your students' presentation tactics and public speaking abilities - a critical component for young leaders. Most presentations consist of teams of 2, 3 or 4 students to deliver these impactful sessions.
The best part of presenting your Showcase at a Regional event is that your presentation can be selected to present at the State Conference! The top presentations from our Regional Connect events are voted on by attending schools (on site) for a chance to present to over 2,000 student leaders from across the State of Michigan!
In order to give students all the tools they need to deliver a world class presentation, we have developed a number of resources to assist in the creation, presentation and execution of your Showcase Presentation. Please review the following information and submit today!
For this years Regional Showcase Submissions, we want students to submit programming concepts completed during the 2020 school year, or those being executed in the 2021 school year. Although we recognize that schools have amazing programming that have been put on hold due to COVID-19, we encourage schools to present on programming that will not be completed this year. Instead, focus on the accomplishments, adaptations and creative planning that has allowed your school to be successful during this school year. Traditional program concepts welcome!

Showcase Voting for the State Conference
During the closing of each Regional event, schools will be issued digital voting tokens. These tokens will be cast for the top Showcase Presentations they experienced throughout the day. After all votes have been collected, totals will be tallied and the top winners from each Regional event will be announced and offered the chance to present at our State Conference!
The remaining Showcase presentations are selected via our Showcase Evaluation Rubric that the Michigan Student Board of Delegates will be using to evaluate during each presentation. Those scores will be calculated at the conclusion of our Regional events and those winners will also be notified to present at the State Conference.
The current number of showcase presentations and MSV presentations will be available in the coming months leading up to this event. We appreciate your patience as we finalize our process and virtual logistics.
