A day students and industry came together to celebrate student voice and digital leadership in social media. At this year's pre-event, we celebrated with a beach BBQ and filmed a music video with musician Lisa Heller. 

The next day, 100 students, educators and industry descended on Twitter HQ in SF where the students shared their stories of success and how they made #Digital4Good happen at their schools.

Below you can see their videos, hear their stories and see how you could be inspired to do #Digital4Good at your school.
