The League of Extraordinary Scholars: KappaCon 2016 aka Regional Awards is scheduled for March 3-6 at Clark State in Springfield. We are excited this year to be having a Cosplay contest and Kappa Klatch on Friday night. Come as your favorite character from anime, video games, movies or comics and join in the fun. Kappa Klatch is an open mic where your fellow Kappans can sing, dance, recite poetry, perform spoken word pieces, and just generally have fun. Due to a scheduling conflict Wittenberg has had to cancel their plans to host us for dinner, so dinner will be served at the Hollenbeck Center at Clark State.Registrations HAVE TO BE IN BY FEBRUARY 3RD so get all the information here and we'll see you there.

The Phi Theta Kappa specialty license plate will go on sale Monday, June 8th! The cost is an additional $35.00 of the normal plate cost. The plate can be purchased for any private vehicle excluding motorcycles. If you wish to purchase the plate, all you have to do is go to your local BVM. This can be done at the time of your birthday or sooner if you do not want to wait. To get the plate mid-year, just tell the BMV that you desire the Phi Theta Kappa plate and they will assist you. You will have to pay the additional $35.00 plus a $15.00 one-time fee to get a new set of plates. The $15.00 is the normal fee anytime you want to replace an old set. You will then receive a temporary tag until your new plates come in the mail; about a week. If you wish to buy the plate online at the time of your birthday (not trading in) go to www.oplates.com and follow these instructions:

Click on special plate availability
