Social Media Seminar set for June 22-28, 2019
Registration Now Open for 2019 Seminar
Social media is here to stay as an integral part of our everyday lives. It impacts how we think, perceive, and communicate with others on a minute-by-minute basis—and helps shape the face we present to the world.
At the 2019 World Affairs Seminar, we will address social media head on, discussing ethical dilemmas, issues of privacy, transparency and identity, and the economic and political ramifications. From Facebook to Instagram to Twitter, we need to understand its promise and perils to fully harness a technology that can truly make the world a better place.
Early Bird Registration is now open! All seminar information, including our 2019 brochure, registration materials and sponsorship information is available on our website.
We hope you will consider sending students to our 2019 seminar on The Promise and Perils of Social Media. WAS is a unique educational experience that gives high school students the opportunity to interact with peers from around the world.
Take advantage of the Early Bird discount before February 28, 2019 to receive an additional $50 discount per student.
If you have funds to support more students from other areas, please let us know. We often receive requests for scholarships for students interested in attending. Likewise, if you have more students than available scholarships, we can work with you to locate additional scholarships from other sources.
Please contact us with questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours in Rotary Service,
Thomas M. Plantenberg
