  Michigan Student Voice

It's back and better than ever! Michigan Student Voice was a huge hit last year and we look to build on it for 2019! Last year, the MSV program debuted at the 2018 State Conference. This concept is designed to give students the change to present on a number of different topics related to student achievement and student-centered growth. This year, we are adding MSV to our Regional Connect events, providing more impactful content to an already packed day! If your students are interested in submitting, check out the MSV application and guidelines page.
