As hard as it might be to believe, Russia, Tokyo, and Red Lion all have an important similarity between them. All of the previously mentioned locations have all been selected by certain governing bodies to hold very important gatherings.
Fifa voted on having Russia host the next World Cup, the Olympic Committee chose Tokyo to hold the next summer games, and the Pennsylvania Association of Student Councils allowed for Red Lion and its Student Council to hold the next Pennsylvania state conference.
Last year, members of Student Council had to travel to Altoona High School and give a presentation on why they should host the conference. Altoona High School is the home of the PASC and also where it was founded in 1932.
