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.
