ST. THOMAS ­- While being brainy is not typically "cool" among youngsters, more kids may start picking up books after attending the third annual "Man-Up" male empowerment conference Monday.

Held at the University of the Virgin Islands Sports and Fitness Center, the conference is a jointly sponsored program of UVI; the V.I. Education Department; the V.I. Human Services Department; and the Prior Family Foundation.
