Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to attend for the entire summit?

Yes! Because each team will be working on a solution throughout the course of the 5 days, we will expect that each participant is able to attend all five days.

I’ll be graduating high school in June of 2018. Can I still participate?

Unfortunately the summit is only open to rising 9th-12th graders. However, if you would be interested in volunteering, please e-mail Gayle Robinson at

Do I need to bring lunch?

No, JA will provide lunch for each of the 5 days. You are welcome to bring a small snack.

What should I expect after I register?

JA staff members will be in contact with a welcome packet and any tasks to be completed prior to the summit.

If I register before May 15 but do not pay before May 15, will I get the early bird price?

Yes. All registrations received before May 15 will qualify for early bird pricing – regardless of when they are paid.
