Students of WAG (SoWAG)

Do you know a student who is creative and passionate about art? Then recommend them for SoWAG which provides teenagers with the opportunity to explore their creativity and design their own WAG-inspired events (while earning high-school volunteer credit!). Several schools have nominated students to sit on this board which meets regularly with WAG staff to discuss and implement programs and events aimed at a teen audience. If you know a teen who would be interested, fill out this SoWAG form and send it in to us.
