Student Voice

Governance Camp believes that student voice matters and has infused student participation in this unique conference by highlighting the incredible students in our state. We believe that we cannot create the leaders of tomorrow without letting them lead today.

On Friday, March 1, 2024, breakout sessions will focus on Texas public school students' real-life experiences impacting student achievement and student outcomes. These Student Voice sessions should be presented or co-presented by students about initiatives and programs driven by students or developed by students. The session time is one full hour of content. 

More details about presenting a Student Voice Session can be found on the application itself. Any student under 18 must also complete a parental permission form

Submissions for sessions and demonstrations will open Fall 2023.
