Our volunteer State Coordinators are the backbone — and the heart! — of the LifeSmarts program. We are fortunate to work with great people across the country representing a variety of organizations and agencies. Thanks for all you do! Coordinators oversee the statewide program: marketing and promoting LifeSmarts, serving as the local contact for coaches, and planning and conducting the annual in-person state LifeSmarts competition. Many of our wonderful state coordinators have been volunteering for LifeSmarts for over 20 years!
