The Green Bay Packers are inviting middle school students throughout Wisconsin to "Empower," a leadership event aimed at inspiring students to be positive leaders, on Jan. 18, 2024.
The free, day-long event will take place at the Resch Expo at 840 Armed Forces Drive in Ashwaubenon from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The event will include a variety of leadership activities and programs aimed at encouraging sixth through eighth grade students to be their best selves and create positive changes in their communities.
The event also will include a presentation from keynote speaker Orlando Bowen, along with lunch and free t-shirts for participants. The event is fully funded by the Packers; the only cost for schools to attend is transportation to and from the event. There is no cost for the students to attend. Students in grades six through eight for the 2023- 24 school year are eligible to participate.
Teachers and school district community leaders are invited to bring their middle school students to participate. Toregister, please visit packers.formstack.com/forms/empowerwisconsin2024 and register by Nov. 27, as space is limited.
Upon registering, school leaders will receive a confirmation email with link to provide attendee information (names, allergies, t-shirt sizes) by Friday, Dec. 15. Each middle school will be able to bring up to 14 students and two chaperones; schools are asked to include a second chaperone if more than seven students will be attending.
