Our first keynote speaker is Estin Talavera, a national speaker on the topics of disability and technology. Estin has been totally blind since 7 months old due to a traumatic brain injury caused by being shaken by a babysitter. Estin learned at a very young age that technology could level his playing field with his peers. A recent college graduate, Estin is passionate about teaching individuals with disabilities how to utilize the latest technology available. Estin has started his own company called En-sight and works with schools and corporations to ensure that individuals with disabilities are able to be independent and succeed with the adaptation of assistive technology and the knowledge to use it.

Our second keynote speaker is Miss Montana 2016, Lauren Scofield, of Havre, MT. Lauren said the main reason she participates in pageants is for the opportunity to win scholarships, go on school tours, and to promote her education platform. Lauren said she "hopes to plant the seeds of STEM - science, technology, engineering and math this year," and wants to inspire creative and innovative thinking. Her drive and understanding of why it is so important to get young ladies involved into the STEM world is invaluable.

This year's door prizes include a $150 gift certificate to Fairmont Hotsprings + $150 spending money, a Keurig coffee maker, a MakerBot 3-D printer, and more!
