I've been the Chapter Director for the past two years, but I've been involved for the last five or six. It is challenging, exasperating, and exhilarating all at once. All students must be chaperoned by an adult for the entire conference. It is so great because there are no connecting characters, but there is a connecting theme. Each school kind of determines how to handle it: if the kid pays for it, or if they fundraise for it. The judges will pick those that really stand out, they will go to a callback and we will select eight performers to showcase their piece.
