Every year, JSA students plan more than 30 conventions at the chapter, state, and national level. JSA conventions are a place for learning by doing, political engagement, and connecting with peers interested in politics and current issues.
JSA's major conventions are held three times per year and bring together chapter members in individual Junior States to debate, dialogue, and engage with activism projects and organizations. At JSA conventions, students are challenged to speak on many issues and understand complex arguments. Conventions expose students to perspectives and ideas that they might not otherwise encounter in their local communities.
All 2020 and 2021 conventions are virtual due to Covid-19.
