The Asian American High School Conference is an annual academic and leadership conference that brings together high school students from all across Utah. Students are provided with educational resources, including scholarships, admissions, and major exploration workshops, and opportunities to meet and connect with U of U faculty, staff, and students. Students also attend critical learning workshops on Asian and Asian American issues, current events, social justice, and identity.

This year's theme is "Brand Yourself". The main goals of this conference are to encourage Asian American students to make a name for themselves as well as highlight their features, skills, and talents that they have as youths in this society while also putting a focus on Asian Americans in film, media, entertainment and the importance of having representation on various platforms. We hope to encourage the pursuit of higher education and help students find ways to make a positive change in their communities.
