Spring Celebration of Service and Leadership

Students present at the 2017 Spring Celebration of Service & Leadership

Share how you live WE > ME by presenting at the Spring Celebration of Service & Leadership on Tuesday, May 21, 2019.  Students will have the opportunity to showcase how they engage in service, leadership, and/or activism through a poster presentation. Apply by April 11, 2019 and join more than 300 fellow students in sharing your story of service and leadership. 2019 applications will open Tuesday, March 12.


Participating is a great way to:

  • Share stories of service, leadership and activist work and connect with staff, students, faculty, and community partners.
  • Network with faculty, staff, and off-campus professionals working in your areas of interest.
  • Get feedback regarding your project and presentation.

Participating in Spring Celebration and learning how students are creating impact was “humbling and inspiring. …This event gave me the opportunity to create and tell my story and also receive valuable feedback about my project from my friends and strangers alike.” —Tara Ghassemikia, UW alum

We welcome undergraduate and graduate students from all three UW campuses to share their experiences.

Check in for presenters will be between 2:30-3:30 p.m. (plan for 15 minutes to set-up) and the time commitment for standing by and representing your project will be from 3:30-5:00 p.m. We invite all presenters to stay for a short program and reception immediately following the gallery which will include great food, service stories and leadership spotlights.
