District 833 students inspired at WE Day Minnesota 2017

More than 200 students and staff members from District 833 joined students from schools throughout Minnesota on Nov. 8 to participate in WE Day, an event designed to reward and inspire youth for volunteerism.

Students earn their way to WE Day by the actions they take on local and global causes of their choice through the WE Schools program. Last year, students from South Washington County Schools volunteered for 225 hours and collected 373 pounds of food.

“The WE Movement empowers our students to do good locally and globally. I am impressed by all they’ve accomplished so far and am eager to see all the good they can do in the year ahead,” said Superintendent Keith Jacobus.

WE Day Minnesota 2017 was held at the Xcel Energy Center, where students and staff had the chance to listen to several inspirational speakers and musical acts, including Ann Curry, Margaret Trudeau, Grace VanderWaal, Jessie Reyez, and more. The event also featured international activists and WE Day Co-founders, Craig and Marc Kielburger, who shared their passion for change and international experiences.

WE Day is free of charge to the thousands of students and educators in attendance, thanks to the support of sponsors. Students from middle and high schools across District 833 attended the event.
