Step 4: After The Conference
When you return home from the Conference, make sure to thank all your sponsors again for their generosity. Your sponsors, classmates and school officials will be very interested in your activities at the Conference, and sharing the knowledge you gained will allow others to benefit from your experience as well.
From the notes you have taken at the Conference, create a day-by-day record of what happened, who spoke and what was said.
Bring a camera with you to the Conference and take snapshots of some of the people and the area. Have prints made and mount a few of them on one or two sheets of paper with captions. Include these along with your daily reports and thank-you notes to your sponsors.
You are also paving the way for the future. By giving your sponsors such positive feedback, they just might be willing to sponsor other qualified young people from your area in coming years.

Best of luck in meeting your fundraising challenge!
