    There will be many exciting interactive activites, resources, and FUN! This event brings thousands of our island's teens (public & private high schools) under one roof, providing them exposure to financial responsibility, college and career preparation, connect with military and non-profit organizations and various teen outreach programs. Teens will also enjoy a Fashion Show that will teach them how to dress/not dress for the workplace/job interviews.  

    In addiiton to the many resources avaialble, the teens will have opportunities to win exciting raffle prizes and receive coupons.  There will be a LIVE Lip Dup Challenge where the best school performance wins $2,500.  The school with the most participants to attend the LIFE Teen Expo will also win the School Spriit Award of $1,000.
