All registrants and guests are invited to attend! Come join the fun and support the ISBA Scholarship Trust. Auction items are provided by the trustees from all areas of the State and reflect the distinctiveness of each district. Every year the attendees get into the excitement as they bid against each other on live auction items and silent auction items.
Funds generated from the ISBA Scholarship Auction provide scholarships to high school seniors who are children and grandchildren of Idaho’s school board members. The ISBA Scholarship Trust has awarded over $115,000 in scholarships in the past 14 years. These scholarships would not be possible without those attendees who donate and buy items at the Scholarship Auction each year. Please consider bringing a donation item to the Convention and bidding during the live and silent auctions. And remember, the Scholarship Trust is a 501(c)(3) so your donations are tax-deductible!
In the past, handmade quilts; well-crafted student art pieces; and fun activities like tickets to events or attractions and hotel stays have been very popular with bidders. Specialty food items and Bronco/Vandal gear have also been met with enthusiasm.
Fundraising experts recommend unique items and experiences as hot items—signed sports or music memorabilia, dinner with a local celebrity, a portrait by an artist, or a tour of a brewery. The possibilities are endless!
