FEES & CANCELLATION
As a benefit of membership in VSUP, there is NO CHARGE for participation in the Student Leadership Conference.
However, registered high schools are required to give NOTICE OF CANCELLATION by THURSDAY, November 3, if they are not able to attend.
Registered high schools which do NOT give notice of cancellation at least one week in advance will be charged $200.
Each high school is required to have at least one Faculty Advisor. Each school can also bring one additional Faculty Advisor (not required).
SHARE FAIR ASSEMBLY:
“Dare to Share”
Schools have the option of choosing to prepare a five minute formal presentation about some program, activity, or event at their school which they would give to an audience of approximately 200 participants during the conference. The presentation should focus on a specific aspect of their school which students are particularly proud of and which they believe students from other schools would want to learn more about.
Schools which commit to preparing a presentation will be required to submit their completed proposed presentation by Friday, October 21. The twelve best proposals will be selected to be presented during the Share Fair Assembly.
On the registration form, schools which choose to COMMIT to preparing a presentation for the Share Fair Assembly will be asked to provide a 50-100 word description of the TOPIC of their presentation.
Schools which take on this extra responsibility of preparing a presentation (which could be one of the twelve selected to be delivered during the Share Fair Assembly) will be given the option of registering TWO additional student participants who will be in charge of the presentation. (An email address and phone number will need to be provided for each Presentation Planner).
Therefore, schools which COMMIT to preparing a presentation for the Share Fair Assembly are allowed to register a total of up to SEVEN students on their SLC team.
Seniors who are registered as one of the school’s team of participants are given the option of committing to serve as Student Facilitators who will lead Discussion Groups and perform other duties during the Student Leadership Conference.
If Seniors are registered as Student Facilitators, they will be required to take on additional responsibilities throughout the day of the conference, and they will also be asked to participate, either in person or “virtually,” in a Facilitator Training Session, which will be held on Saturday, November 5, from noon – 3 pm (lunch provided) in Charlottesville, Virginia.
An email address and phone number will need to be provided for any senior who makes the commitment to serve as a Senior Facilitator.
THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2016.
Please be sure to complete the registration for your school by the deadline.
If necessary, substitutions for specific participants can be made after the school’s registration has been submitted.
If all 400 available spaces are not filled by October 21, we will notify Faculty Advisors from schools that have completed the registration that they may submit the names of additional participants (with seniors who volunteer to serve as Senior Facilitators being given first priority).
We will NOT be able to accommodate schools which have not submitted their team registration by Friday, October 14, 2016.
