Don't forget to apply for the third biennial NFB Youth Slam. There's
sure to be something for everyone. We guarantee this summer program
will be like no other you've ever been to before! One hundred and
fifty blind and low vision students from all across the country will
be selected to attend this five-day adventure, to be held in
Baltimore, Maryland, at Towson University July 17-23,2011.
While staying on a college campus, students will be mentored by blind
role models during fun and challenging activities designed to build
confidence and increase science literacy. Participants will also
have the opportunity to attend workshops on topics such as
leadership, career preparation, and blindness. In addition, students
and mentors will take part in a variety of social events throughout
the week. Come to the NFB Youth Slam and meet other blind and low
vision students from all over the United States!
Interested students who will be age fourteen at the time of the
program, and are starting high school (ninth grade) in the fall of
2011 or are currently in high school (including those graduating in
the spring of 2011) should complete an application online at
<http://www.blindscience.org>www.blindscience.org before March 1,
2011. Students need not have a strong interest in science,
technology, engineering, or math (STEM) in order to participate,
enjoy, and benefit from this extraordinary experience. Adult
volunteers are also needed for this program, and Volunteer
applications can also be found at the site.
