The Saskatchewan Student Leadership Conference will be coming to a local community in just a few months.

Winston High School in Watrous will host close to 1000 students this September 18th to the 20th, as their bid to accommodate the annual Student Leadership Conference was approved last year.

This is the third time Watrous has hosted the event, with the previous two times being in 1993, and again in 2012. Tina Edwards, Chairperson with the 2019 SSLC, talked about how the numerous amenities in the surrounding area will make the process a more streamlined one.

"We are really lucky to not only have opportunities in Watrous to take care of any needs, but also Manitou Beach and other surrounding towns. This offers us many options to tackle billeting and overnight stay details."

Edwards also went into detail about how the process of preparation is hoped to be one that involved everyone.

"We have been working for a couple of years with a student committee, and in a month or two we hope to involve the entire student body with planning and organizing our kids into many committees."
