New this Year: Maker Spaces!

We are excited to announce that Dr. L. Robert Furman, and ISTE best-selling book author, will be joining us to lead a session and to host a book signing.  Dr. Furman will be available on Thursday, March 10th across from the registration desk to sell and sign his book "Technology, Reading & Digital Literacy: Strategies to Engage the Reluctant Reader".  The cost of the book will be $20.  Cash and Credit Cards will be accepted.

Team Kids: Come hear the Russell Independent Band play, starting at 4:30 Wednesday evening, right before the grand opening of the vendor hall!


Just for Fun

You Shoot, You Score! - You could win a $100.00 Amazon Gift Card if you can get the highest score!  There will be a place to shoot hoops set up in the vendor area by the escalator.  Show us what you’ve got!  Click Here for Game Rules. 
Added bonus:  You can take the shooting gallery home at the end of the conference!  Simply put your name in the box provided beside the game area if you would like to win it!  Only one catch, you have to be able to take it home with you that day so please come prepared with a plan to transport!


Show your team Spirit! - This year we are going to have a “dress code”, of course participation is optional, but it makes for great conversations!

  • Wednesday will be business casual
  • Thursday will be “Represent your home team” (colors/attire that represents the school/district you work for OR the school/district you graduated from, your kids go to or one that is near and dear to your heart)
  • Friday will be “Represent your favorite college basketball team” (Interested to see the blue vs. red this day)

Mystery Ribbons! - You will find that several of our vendors will be handing out ribbons that you can attach to your name badge.  Try to find sayings that really suit you, if you don’t like the ones you get, try to trade! Attach all ribbons you keep to your name badge holder.  There will be eight ribbons that are unique in some way that ONLY select KySTE Board members know about!  If you happen to show up at the closing session with one of the eight mystery badges attached to your name tag holder you are guaranteed a prize!  Everybody gets one clue…….each of our Platinum partners and two of our vendor game sponsors have the mystery badges, but even THEY don’t know which ones they are!
