Students Taking a New Direction (STAND) had its sixth annual youth conference at the Wigwam Resort in Phoenix on June 12, 2015. Each year, STAND members from around the state converge in Phoenix to celebrate their efforts for the year and to learn about new ways to combat tobacco. This year, the theme was hero’s and villain’s and the kids dressed up as their favorite hero and villain. The celebration highlights a three-day conference designed by STAND members to increase leadership skills and inspire future efforts. This year, STAND asked Digital Expressions Photo Booths to set up our photo booth for the kids — and obviously for the adults, who had just as much fun. It felt like Halloween in June. Being the mother of four grown children, I truly appreciate the dedication these young minds have to this organization.
