A Free, Fun-filled Learning Experience To Plan Your Future

Picture this: A Saturday where you can explore all things college without spending a dime. Explore with your friends, families and classmates! Whether you're a student wanting to learn about their options or a parent or guardian wondering how to support your child's next steps, COLLEGECON has something for everyone. 

This event is custom-made for families with students in grades 9 through 12. And if you're in the 7th or 8th grade with the College Bound Scholarship, you're also invited! It’s a free event, with transportation, breakfast, lunch, and childcare included.

With 70% of jobs in Washington requiring some form of education after high school, this is your chance to learn about the resources that will get you ready for the future you choose. Even if you’re at square one or just finalizing your plans, this is the event for you.
