The Stanislaus County Office of Education is proud of the county-wide Student Events Program. In partnership with community organizations, county school districts, and the Education Foundation of Stanislaus County, we coordinate or sponsor 12 student events throughout the year, drawing participation from more than 5,000 students. Designed to encourage achievement among 4th grade through 12th grade students, events range from Music Festivals to the Academic Decathlon. The winners of local academic contests often have the opportunity to compete in state competitions, opening a whole new world of exciting possibilities for them.
It takes more than 1,500 volunteers and many hours of teacher and student time to prepare for these events. Congratulations to the students for their participation in these events and special thanks to teacher coaches for their commitment and support to the Student Events Program.
