OAV Summit at Dubois

May 21, 2018

Our American Voices (OAV) is a student leadership group focused on civics, led by Mrs. Gaines, hosted the annual statewide OAV Summit at Dubois for the second year in a row since its inception at Dubois. OAV students at Dubois participate in various leadership activities including peer tutoring, team building activities with all classes and last year afforded all students the opportunity to vote in a mock election.

Students from across the entire state of Illinois gathered in the Jenn Ryan Auditorium to discuss the important work that they are doing in schools and communities across the state.  Statewide, OAV students range in grades 5 through high school. After gathering at Dubois, students boarded busses to meet legislators at the Capitol building. Congratulations OAV!
