You can purchase your raffle tickets for the IDEA Scholarship when you register or before the conference! The IDEA Scholarship awards low-income, first generation students a $500 scholarship who are pursuing a degree at any WACAC-member school. We ask for your generosity to help fuel this scholarship and to purchase raffle tickets for the conference. Prizes will be awarded to the raffle winners.
