We encourage you to call those individuals you feel may be interested, and provide them with the following information.

Apply right now<https://nfb.org/youth-slam-student-application>! NFB Youth Slam is a weeklong learning opportunity in a wide-variety of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines. Students will learn new skills, make new friends, and have fun while being mentored by STEM professionals, many of whom are blind, from all over the United States.

One hundred blind and low-vision high school students from across the country will be selected to attend this weeklong adventure at Towson University in Maryland from July 23 to 29, 2017. The NFB Youth Slam will engage, inspire, and encourage you-the next generation of blind scientists, engineers, programmers, and mathematicians-to consider STEM careers. While some falsely believe these careers are not for blind students, the NFB is here to help you live the life you want. Your hopes and dreams define your future; blindness does not.

While staying on campus at Towson University, students will be mentored by positive blind role models. The range of fun and challenging activities will raise your expectations, build confidence, and increase your science literacy. Build your NFB Youth Slam schedule from a selection of twenty STEM disciplines including fields such as: robotics, biology, engineering, neuroscience, chemistry, and even video game design! The possibilities are endless.

Students who are currently in grades 9-12 in the United States are invited to apply online via https://nfb.org/youth-slam-student-application.
