4 reasons to go to district convention

Your district’s annual convention is the perfect time to highlight the amazing work you and your club have done throughout the year—and we want to hear about it! Use the hashtag #DCON when you post Instagram photos or tweet about what’s going on.

Here are the top four reasons to attend your district convention this spring.


The best thing about Key Club workshops is that there’s one for just about any topic. Whether you’re searching for new fundraising ideas or needing tips about applying for scholarships, there’s going to be something for you.

Sure, high school dances can be fun, but a high school dance with only Key Club members is more exciting than front row tickets to a One Direction concert. (Double check with your lieutenant governor whether your district convention will have a dance.)

New friends

It’s common knowledge that some of the best friends you’ll make in high school will be Key Club members, and not necessarily ones just from your own school. The further you get involved in Key Club, the more friends you’ll make around the state, region, country and world. And the best part? Your new friends share the same servant-leader mindset you have. Your district convention is one of the best places to start building those friendships.

 Big picture

If you haven’t been to a Key Club event outside of the ones your club hosts, your district convention will be an eye-opening experience. Meeting high school students from other schools in your area who enjoy community service and everything else that Key Club represents is a chance you shouldn’t pass up. It’s hard to explain in words, but after attending a district convention, you just get it.

Note: Each district’s convention is different. Some districts host convention marriages and penny wars. Others show off their Key Club pride with district chants. So, what’s guaranteed? Lots of fun, fellowship and celebration!

The greatest thing about attending district convention is that it isn’t just for club officers. Any Key Club member can go! Find out when your district convention is, then talk to your club advisor or lieutenant governor for details.
