Florida FIRST Advocacy Conference
Thank you for your interest in the first Florida FIRST Advocacy Conference scheduled for March 19-21, 2019 in Tallahassee. The training is intended for high school students and select, mature older middle schoolers participating actively on FTC and FRC teams. Space is limited.
Modeled after the FIRST National Advocacy Conference in Washington, DC, the Florida FIRST Advocacy Conference will equip students to communicate effectively with their elected representatives. The organizers, FTC RISE 7719 from Lakeland Christian School, participated in the National Advocacy Conference in 2018. RISE was inspired to bring this training back to Florida to share with other FIRST teams.
We have developed a partnership with the Florida Commission on the Status of Women's LEAD Summit, which will connect FIRST students to a broad coalition of leaders from organizations across the state of Florida during their days in Tallahassee.
Conference fee: $40 per person or $100 per team covers snacks, conference materials, and activities. Breakfast is included at the hotel. Meals are on your own, with myriad options at a range of price points. If you wish to apply for a conference scholarship, please contact Jennifer Canady at
