At the keynote session, presented by Mary Beth Tinker from the landmark 1969 Supreme Court case Tinker vs. Des Moines, sophomore Devin Vaudreuil was presented with a T-shirt for knowing one of the First Amendment rights.

After the keynote session, students attended three sessions from a variety of options in which they honed their journalism skills.
