It’s often said that Vermont’s best exports are its children.

If you want to know what that means, make some time to visit the St. Johnsbury Academy campus today where seniors will present their projects for Senior Capstone Conference Day. According to the Academy, the event “effectively enhances the student’s focus on professionalism, further develops a sense of intellectual self-reliance, more thoroughly integrates the greater community into our academic program, and augments the students’ sense of responsibility and integrity.”

In layman’s terms it means the kids spent their entire semester becoming experts in their chosen topics and today are going to knock the socks off anyone lucky to attend.

If you’re interested in having your faith in humanity restored, stop by any of the following venues throughout the day.
