Attendance for the Young Women’s Conference is limited to groups of at least 3 and at most 10 young women. Typically, schools select students to attend based on interest and performance in science classes. If you are a parent or guardian thinking of bringing your daughter to the event, we just require that you bring at least 3 young women in addition to an adult chaperone.
Students who attend the YWC must be in grades 7–10 and be female.
Registration is free but must be completed by February 14th, 2014. In order to register, schools must provide the total number of students attending, their dietary restrictions, and a media release form signed by the student's parent/guardian.
Starting in November, school groups can reserve space for up to 10 students and 1 teacher or adult chaperone. Registration will be completed on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited, so we encourage you to complete the registration process as early as possible.
Requests to bring more than 10 students should be noted in the "Comments" section of the registration form. Requests will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis after the final registration deadline (February 14th, 2014) has passed.
