A fee of $10.00 per student is due at the December Mini-Convention. Please take your check to the district treasurer's table and get a receipt before checking in your students. The fee will double if not paid at the convention. Make check payable to NORTHWEST DISTRICT KMEA. Fees may be sent to Connie Reishus beforehand or bring them to the convention.
