We are looking for a host for the South Central Regional Conference Spring 2020.

Calling all CSF and CJSF Chapters in South Central Region!

We are looking for a host for the South Central Regional Conference Spring 2020.*

Regional Conferences:

  • Are open to all CSF and CJSF chapters in the South Central Region.
  • Provide a great opportunity to meet, and network with other CSF and CJSF advisers and students in the region.
  • Offer a venue for the final determination of CSF Seymour Award and CJSF Huhn Award recipients, and for a ceremony to present the awards.

Why host a regional conference?

  • Have you attended a CSF/CJSF spring conference and have ideas about how you would host the conference?
  • Have you been unable to attend a region conference because the location was too far away?
  • Hosting will allow you to do it “your way” and have the conference in your own back yard.
  • Hosting the conference is an opportunity for fund-raising, with some financial support from CSF.

Resources are available to help you plan and host a conference.

  • You will have CSF/CJSF Board support and help throughout the planning and during the conference.
  • A step-by-step Conference Host Handbook provides guidance and ideas.

*Collaborate with another local high school or middle school that has a CSF/CJSF chapter or do it on your own.

You may have a choice of dates in March and April 2020.

Contact Renee Tyler at reneetyler@csf-cjsf.org to learn more about hosting the South Central Regional Conference in Spring 2020 or 2021. We will gladly provide you with a list of chapters in your area.

Seymour, who together supplied the inspiration and leadership which fostered the California Scholarship Federation. The very first award of $25 was presented to Seymour Award recipient Elizabeth Murphy (O’Neil) of Fresno High School in 1936. Each year, 50 finalists receive awards of $2,000 each, and five of these (one per region) each receive an additional $3,000 as the regional award recipient. The Seymour Award is regarded as one of the highest scholastic honors given to high school students in the state of California.
