A.C.E. Student Convention can be identified as a “3D Event”. It is a residential event where students can Discover their God-given gifts and abilities, an event where students can Develop those gifts and abilities and where they can also learn to Dedicate their gifts and abilities to God and the ministry of Christian endeavour. Convention offers students the opportunity to compete in a Christian context.
Students may choose from over 140 different events, so it is likely that every student will find events in which they can compete in a Christian context. There events are spread across eight different categories: Academics, Athletics, Art and Craft, Music (Vocal and Instrumental), Photography, and Platform (Speech and Drama). The South Pacific A.C.E.
