The annual Workshop conference will take place at the Atlantic City Convention Center from Monday through Thursday, Oct. 22-25, 2018. The theme for Workshop 2018, “Engaging Every Child,” reinforces our belief that every child has a path toward success.

The Workshop 2018 student performance submission application is now open, and the New Jersey School Boards Association is looking for students to sing, dance, perform music, or show off other talents to energize the audience. This is an opportunity to showcase school and district programs from across New Jersey. The students will perform on Oct. 23 and Oct. 24 on the exhibit floor at the Atlantic City Convention Center.

NJSBA will reimburse schools up to $500 for their transportation costs upon receipt of an invoice for expenses. Performances should be 10 to 15 minutes in length (or less) and performance groups are limited to a maximum of 10 students.

All submissions will receive equal consideration. The deadline for receiving the completed Student Performance Proposal Form is Friday, April 27, 2018. Those submitting proposals will be notified of the Association’s decision by mid-June.
