Please let me know if you're planning on attending the conference, just haven't done the paperwork, yet.
There's some information at the bottom of this email about Jared Campbell, the speaker heading to Eatonville High School on March 23rd. Please make note of that if you want to bring Jared to your school!

--> We are looking for conference presenters and I know that many of you have a ton of great ideas to share with others.

Chris Evans (Captain America) and Chris Pratt (Star Lord) make good on
their Super Bowl bet:
