For 7th grade girls and boys
Annual event usually held in April
Snowflake allows middle/junior high school students to explore leadership and communication skills, healthy decision-making, substance abuse prevention and ways to resist negative peer influences. Planned and implemented by trained high school students with adults serving in advisory roles, the day-long event includes a dynamic keynote speaker, several fun group activities, a pizza dinner and a dance. HGNA was one of the original sponsors of this event which is now a collaborative effort between Downers Grove North and South High Schools, Lakeview Junior High, Herrick and O'Neill Middle Schools, Downers Grove Township and the Downers Grove Police Department.
