Congratulations to all of our competition participants and winners! Each year at EAST Conference, students have the opportunity to sharpen their skills and further develop their self-confidence with our pre-conference and onsite competitions! Help us celebrate our winners as they learn winning is not about beating the next person, but developing the best version of yourself!

2020 Conference Award Winners

The EAST Founder's Award

The EAST Founder’s Award and Cornerstone Awards recognize programs that are solid in the core principals of EAST. Built on the cornerstones of Project Sophistication & Innovation, Student Growth & Engagement, and Community & Collaboration, EAST provides opportunities for students to create their own journey to their own destiny.
