Young Tradition Weekend Update

We are excited to announce that we are accepting submissions for the Young Tradition Weekend contest, and we have begun outreach to gather performers for the popular teacher-student showcase. In the next week or two, we will be sending out a sponsorship request to local businesses and individuals. If you can help with this, or know of anyone we can send this request to, please let us know! Those who give a $100 sponsorship will get their logo or name on a banner which will be displayed at all YT Weekend events. We’ve sent out a “Save the Date” press release for YT Weekend, which includes the current YT Weekend schedule:
