District 20

District 20 Leadership Conference is scheduled for February, 5, 2016  at Three Rivers College in Poplar Bluff.

The back-up date for the conference is Friday, February 19, 2016 at Three Rivers College in Poplar Bluff.


Welcome to our new district website! This should be your first stop for information regarding our contest. Please remember deadlines are not suggestions. They are needed to make everything run smoothly. There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes for everything to get done.

The fees for the conference are $10 per person. Advisers must be registered for the conference, as well as students.

Please remember that per district policy, each chapter must have at least one adviser assist the day of contest for their students to be eligible for competition. This helps the contest run more smoothly. At least one adviser from each chapter must attend the Fall Planning Meeting.

If you think of something you would like to see added to this site, please contact Jeff Davis, Lead Chapter Adviser, at jdavis@puxico.k12.mo.us or Irene Jackson, Lead Chapter Adviser, at ijackson@neelyville.k12.mo.us.


The Fall Planning Meeting will be held from 11-3 pm on Friday, October, 9 at the Bread Company in Poplar Bluff.
