If we’re being honest, we know #postDCONsyndrome is real. So before it sets in, make sure you get as much out of your district convention as you can. It’s the perfect time to highlight the amazing work you and your club have done throughout the year. And make sure we hear about it! Use the hashtag #DCON when you post Instagram photos or tweet about what’s going on.

Here are the top four reasons to attend your district convention this spring:


The best thing about Key Club workshops is there’s one for just about any topic. Whether you’re searching for new fundraising ideas or need tips about applying for scholarships, there’s going to be something for you.


Sure, high school dances can be fun, but a high school dance with only Key Club members is more exciting than front-row tickets to a Taylor Swift concert. (Check with your lieutenant governor to find out if your district convention will have a dance.) 

New friends

It’s common knowledge that some of the best friends you’ll make in high school will be Key Club members, and not necessarily ones only from your own school. The more you get involved in Key Club, the more friends you’ll make around the state, region, country and world. And the best part? Your new friends share the same servant-leadership mindset as you. Your district convention is one of the best places to start building those friendships.

Big picture

If you haven’t been to a Key Club event outside of the ones your club hosts, your district convention will be an eye-opening experience. Meeting other area high school students who enjoy community service and support Key Club’s mission is a chance you shouldn’t pass up. It’s hard to explain, but after attending a district convention, you just get it.

Note: Each district’s convention is different. Some districts host penny wars. Others show off their Key Club pride with district chants. So, what’s guaranteed? Lots of fun, fellowship and celebration!

The greatest thing about attending district convention is that it isn’t just for club officers. Any Key Club member can go! Find out when your district convention is, then talk to your club advisor or lieutenant governor for details.
