Note: we often have trouble sending e-mails to student emails from cps.edu, so if you have an alternate email, please provide that. (Teacher cps.edu emails do not have this issue, so if you are a teacher registering your students and you do not have a parent e-mail available, consider using your email in place of the parent email or instead of repeating the student email so that we have a way to contact someone about registration)
Eligibility: We invite girls in grades 6-8 who attend a Chicago public school, a public school in the south suburbs [districts 143,144, 147, 148 or 149] or a Chicago public charter school to register for our annual conference on March 30th, 2019 at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
