2008 National Student Board of Directors
The National Student Board of Directors is comprised of students (grades 9-12) from from across the United States and one alumni advisor. The group meets in Akron, Ohio every August and October. In August, the Board reviews the National Gallery entries and chooses up to six young inventors for the honor of Induction into the National Gallery the following October. The Student Board has an adult Board of Advisors available to them while considering the entries. At the October Induction Ceremony, the Board meets again to host the banquet and honor the new Inductees. All expenses for travel, meals and lodging are paid for by the National Museum of Education.
