State Thespian Officers
What is a STO?
The STO's job is to plan, host, and manage the upcoming MN State Thespian Festival and Leadership Days around the state. The STO also serve as advocates for their fellow High School Thespians. Any freshman, sophomore or junior who is an inducted Thespian and is in good standing with their troupe may run for office. The student must be prepared to work hard for their fellow MN Thespians and only one student per school may run.
