Convention Theme: Millennial Momentum: Turning the Tide of American Politics
Convention Location: Schaumburg, IL
Convention Dates: April 22-23, 2017
Spring State brings the JSA year to a close with the election of the Governor and Lieutenant Governor. The candidates that have been campaigning for the last four months show off their platforms for the final time, attempting to sway the vote in their favor. Every vote counts down to the very last one.
Meanwhile, delegates participate in debates that cover a multitude of topics. The debates range from traditionally styled debates and thought talks to gavel debates and DefCons. Spring State, just like any other convention, brings together JSAers from all over the Midwest for two days to debate and share their ideas. This convention is not only a great way to meet people who share the same interests, but also say goodbye to good friends for the summer. Spring State is an emotional convention for everyone, but especially the seniors for whom this is their last convention.
