New in 2004 - We're adding a children's catagory.There were dozens of beautiful and creative T-shirts at the 2003 convention. Instead of picking a winner, we donated them to the NYA Silent Action. This is a challenge for everyone: get your kids, parents, friends, support groups, chapters and neighbor together and have a T-Shirt making party. Not only will you have a lot of together-ness and fun, but you'll be helping a worthy cause too!
Convention-Girl's Night Out - Unfortunately this event will not be held in future years due to the schedules of people arriving at the convention.
