LEMONT, Ill., October 31, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Turning Point USA today announced more than 3,000 students have applied to attend their Student Action Summit (SAS) in West Palm Beach. The summit is set to run Dec. 19-22 and will feature dozens of today's most prominent speakers, including Donald Trump Jr., Steve Bannon, Ben Shapiro, Tomi Lahren and Jesse Waters.
"It's great to be able to get so many students together to discuss the importance of freedom and free markets with their fellow peers," said Charlie Kirk, founder and executive director for Turning Point USA. "We're incredibly fortunate to have such a strong lineup of speakers for the students and I sincerely hope every one of these individuals walks away from the event having learned something."
