Christchurch, Auckland and Feilding were the three locations for this year’s annual conference season in the April school holidays.  Each 48 hour event was met with passion and enthusiasm from students, both new and experienced with SADD, from around the country. 

This year’s theme, “Let’s Get Digital” challenged the teens to create videos to support all Kiwi youth when running SADD activities in their schools or communities.  Undertaking the challenge in groups, each group had a day to concept, storyboard, film and edit these videos.  Below is a snippet of what we got up to.

Make change: we’re achieving change through positive peer influence

I loved meeting lots of likeminded people and getting lots of great inspiration for our SADD committee at school.
I loved everything! The disco, the challenge. the people, the food. Such an amazing experience, will come back next year!

It was exciting meeting new people who want to make a difference and communicating our thoughts and passions about SADD.

The best part about conference was making videos that have a real purpose, I feel like I can help to make a difference and get people thinking twice about their driving decisions.
