Conference includes educational seminars and speakers. It is also a
location where women in engineering can meet and network with women
with similar interests, struggles, and aspirations”- SWE 2009 Region G

on the professionals and companies present at the conference.

decorate the dining room, supply cookies and punch, crown a prom king
and queen, and entertain each of the residents. In October, we will be

spectators to the event, and raising money for our cause in their
communities. Individual cheerleaders may enter a jump-off competition
in which other prizes are awarded for the best cheerleading jumps.

How event will benefit YSU: Not only is an event of this caliber
beneficial to those who have been affected by breast cancer, but it
also holds many benefits for its host school, Youngstown State
University. Because we recruit cheerleading squads from all over Ohio,
Pennsylvania, West Virginia, the Midwest, and even Canada, it gives
YSU excellent publicity to those who attend the event. Those not
attending the event will still be reached through various local
television and radio shows. Over half of our participants are high
school students, which gives them the opportunity to see a potential
college they may want to attend. This alone makes it an excellent
recruitment tool for Youngstown State. Anyone belonging to the
University community are invited and encouraged to attend this
