Pricing

This year, NESAWG is instituting an optional tiered pricing structure. We are doing this so we can continue to offer lower cost tickets to those who need it, while raising funds to support lower cost tickets and our scholarship fund. We offer suggestions for each ticket price, but leave it to you to purchase the ticket that works best for your individual or organizational budget. To learn more about the new pricing structure, visit the registration info page on our website.

Scholarships

NESAWG offers scholarships to help make our conference accessible to youth, students, farmers, and low-income people. (Youth is defined as under 25 years of age.) Full scholarships cover the total registration costs of the main conference (Friday and Saturday), while partial scholarships cover 50% of the fee. Scholarship applications close September 23, 2019.

Youth Registration Policy

Youth are welcome at the conference and we encourage organizations working with youth to consider bringing them to participate. This year, we will have programming at the conference developed by youth for youth. We also prioritize youth applicants in our scholarship process.

All youth under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult and must submit a permission slip signed by their parent or guardian to NESAWG. Organizations bringing youth to the conference must also sign and submit a release form to NESAWG.
