Surviving The Game


15th Annual STG Seminar

On September 12th, 2020, we concluded the 15th Annual Surviving the Game Virtual Seminar. Thank you to everyone who presented and participated. This was the first year STG was virtual and we had an amazing turn out and a great time.

In honor of 15 years of service STG decided to hold an STG essay contest! The students were told to write an essay about what they learned from the conference and how they would apply those tools to their life. They wrote about finishing strong, expanding their personal brands, and thinking about they are going to do rather than what they could’ve done. We selected 3 winners; in 1st place Ms. Bobbie Oramalu from Texas; 2nd place Mr. Christian Huble from Minnesota and 3rd place Ms. Lela McGregor from Minnesota, Congratulations to all the winners!

Surviving the Game has always advocated for students continuing their education. On the STG Website the 2020 STG Dream Drivers Scholarship and 2020 STAR Guns Down Books Up Scholarship applications are now open! Current college students seeking two year and four year degrees, be sure to apply by October 1st.

Surviving the game will also be launching a STG Racial Justice Leadership Institute Winter 2020. For more information, follow us on our social media and if you have any questions pertaining email us directly or visit our website at
