Topics to be explored in this session include:
- Factors contributing to a growing number of youth experiencing emotional health issues
- How academic programming & facilities can impact student emotional well being

Thrilled to announce that Oxford Consulting is returning to Starry Night as a Saturn sponsor! I love seeing so
many of our 2013 sponsors come back to us for 2014. It makes us feel really proud of what we do and make us work really hard to put on an event worthy of their continued support. Thank you to the team at Oxford Consulting, and to all our wonderful, amazing, fantastic sponsors-both returning sponsors from 2013 and new sponsors for 2014! Because of your support, we are able to achieve our dream of making sure that Starry Night is free for families and is the most marvelous, wondrous, hands-on, educational event in the land.
We are going to make you proud again this year. I promise.
Last night was an exciting night for us! We found out that RSFi will be returning to Starry Night as a $200 sponsor! Woo Hoo!! AND we learned that the Westerville Sunrise Rotary had granted us $250 for Starry Night! So exciting!!
We heard the news about these amazing sponsorships during our planning meeting and it was an exciting moment-to be placing exhibits and food trucks and raffle tables on the giant map of our event space, and thinking about the flow of families through the space, and envisioning where people would want to sit to eat, and how we would get power to the MyVet exhibit, and positioning the Camera Obscura for natural light, and choosing the t-shirt for the volunteers to wear that day, and showing the team the beautiful event poster (which will debut on Thursday!)…and we get word from these sponsors. We get word that more organizations, more businesses, more people want this to happen and are sending their money to make sure that it does. And it is an amazing feeling. To be in a community like this. To work alongside people like this. To plan a thing like this.
So thank you. RSFi Furniture. And Westerville Sunrise Rotary. And all our amazing sponsors. And all our incredibe exhibitors. And the Starry Night team. And all the volunteers. And the excited teachers and administrators and students and parents who ask me about it all the time and tell me they can’t wait to come to it. And thank you, Westerville, for embracing this event. I’m just feeling beyond grateful today.
