Spring State is the culminating event of the school-year experiences for chapters in each JSA state. Participate in debates, thought talks, and activism initiatives that provide a venue for students to explore important political topics and current events in a structured, respectful space.

Spring State is also the resolution of JSA’s election cycle, where students in each JSA state will announce the student leaders elected at every level for the coming year.

What are School-Year Experiences?

School-Year Experiences are planned and run at the state and chapter -level. These experiences include multi-day state conventions, chapter conventions, and regional events that connect the student citizens of JSA Nation.
