Young Women's Conference Information

The 2021 Young Women's Conference is STEM will be held remotely on May 7, 2021. Exhibitors will have their own personal booth and will interact with participants and because of this, 1 on 1 interactions the event will still have a limit on participants.

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, it is required that you bring at least 3 young women to maximize attendance. Registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited, so we encourage you to complete the registration process as early as possible. Registration is free, but must be completed and SUBMITTED by May 1, 2021. Attendance for the Young Women’s Conference is limited to groups of at least 3 and at most 10 young women. There will be exceptions in number of attendees for Title 1 schools. Please contact Deedee Ortiz for more information.

In order to register, schools must provide the total number of students attending (limit of 10 students and 1 chaperone), any dietary restrictions, and a media release form signed by the student's parent/guardian. Requests to bring more than 10 students should be noted in the "Comments" section of the registration form and you will be notified after the registration deadline if we can accommodate your group. Please do not attempt to register more than 10 students for one school under different accounts. The registration will not be accepted or considered until after the registration deadline, space permitting.

We are planning on recording, taking screenshots and photos of the interactions, therefore please download a copy of our media release form. Please have a parent or guardian for each student print, complete/sign and return to you. You must then RETURN to your YWC registration form and upload each signed form. 

**Important to note**

  • We will be using a new form (link also at the top of the page) for YWC registration this year!
  • Registering for the YWC does not automatically guarantee your acceptance. **SAVE THE EMAIL CONFIRMATION OF YOUR REGISTRATION**. You will be able to click on "edit your form" so that you can upload your media release forms. Just follow the steps and resubmit the form
