High Schools Looking For Senior Project Panelists
Students in Idaho are now required to complete a senior project that allows them to use all the skills they've learned in school, plus real world skills such as time management, organization and communication. As part of the project, students must give an oral presentation and we are looking for community members to serve as presentation panelists. It's easy. It doesn't take much time. And, it's a wonderful opportunity to learn what the next generation is planning for the future. Please sign up today.
