State Thespian Officers (STO)
The State Thespian Officers is made up of a small group of students (no more that 12) assembled from around the state.
STO members are expected to show strong leadership skills and make a positive impact toward the Michigan Educational Theatre Association. They will represent the students of META and help make decisions on Festival including the themes, T-Shirts, Opening Numbers, Student Activities, Delegation of Student Responsibilities, and other major decisions. In addition students will help on other META events and meetings throughout the year.
A maximum of one student per troupe may be selected to run for one of the STO positions.
In order to run, a student must have been a member of the Student State Board the previous year.
Student State Board members must be from a school with an active Michigan ITS Troupe. Their director must support their involvement and must also agree to actively serve on the META Adult State Board.
STO members are required to attend the Summer Leadership Camp.
*If a student misses more than two meetings, he/she will lose his/her position on SLC.
Each student must submit an application form as well as have an adult (non-parent) complete a recommendation form. The application forms below can be clicked on to be filled out.
Elections for 2016:
A committee of Adult State Board Members and prior STO’s attending the Leadership Camp will screen the applications prior to the conference. Interviews will take place at the Leadership Camp. The committee will announce final decisions at the end of Leadership Camp.
