School Fair Request for Proposals

Showcase Your District

Tell your school’s story to Wisconsin school leaders gathered at the 2025 Wisconsin State Education Convention.

School leaders recognize the need to share ideas, network and learn from each other. Innovations at one school often become models for others.

The convention School Fair is a place for public schools to collectively generate enthusiasm for public education and tell their stories to the state. Send your students and educators to share the innovative programs and projects that have made a difference in your district.
