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 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.
