Students Participate in 2024 Educators Rising National Conference

July 9, 2024

Six Sheboygan Area School District students from North and South High Schools recently traveled to the 2024 Educators Rising National Conference in Washington, D.C. The PDK International Staff and National Officers led the conference, which was a huge success!

Both North and South students competed at the conference. From North, Brooke Hess (Senior) and Elizabeth Kaufmann (Junior) competed in the Outstanding Chapter Award Competition, where they had to give a presentation on how the Sheboygan North chapter is making strides to be one of the best in the nation as well as create bylaws, meeting agendas, and many other established documents to go along with the competition. Brynn Mills (Freshman) competed in the Creative Lecture Ted Talk Competition, where she had to give an 8-10 minute speech regarding the issues with teacher pay in the United States without any notecards or materials.

Jenna Resheske and Aidan BlomWillis, both seniors, competed in the Ethical Dilemma competition. This competition presents group members with a situation in which they must develop an ethical solution. Seth Eisenhauer (Junior) competed in the Impromptu Speaking competition. In this Competition, competitors are prompted with a topic on sight, have 10 minutes to plan a speech, and then give the speech on-site to a panel of judges.

Of the six competitors, four of our students placed in the top three for their respective competition categories. The Outstanding Chapter Award and Ethical Dilemma teams placed 3rd in the nation!

In addition, North High Senior Brooke Hess ended her term as a National Student Officer. While serving as the National Student Vice President of Communications, she spoke at many conferences and webinars as a panelist, made social media content for the National account, as well as for the National Student Officers and National Ambassadors to post on their Educators Rising Social Media Accounts, and her favorite part, leading the National Conference where she spent her days making social media content, networking with members from different states, and getting to share news and information during conference sessions. She was the first person from Wisconsin to serve in any national role with educators rising. Her favorite part of the experience was sharing her personal story.

Sheboygan is proud of not only the National competitors but also the students who made it to nationals in general, regardless of attendance, and everyone who helped them along the way. Way to represent the SASD, students!
