June 21-24, please view this short video highlighting some of the student activities and celebrations during the event. Approximately 2500 students traveled to DC for this meeting by utilizing the new AOA Plus program, which provided $750 per student for travel and lodging expenses.&nbsp; In addition to the OM events, a group of students joined WOA leadership in our Capitol Hill visits with Wisconsin&rsquo;s Congressional delegation.&nbsp; As usual, these students enhanced the effectiveness of our meetings by providing their opinions and academic perspectives.</span></span></span></p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/FnZCCWdrMls?ecver=1" allowfullscreen="" width="560" height="315"
