Do you have something to say about the “Education” in Alberta? Then you should join the Speak Out Forum 2014.
Here’s what the description for the conference from their website.
The Speak Out Conference is an opportunity for Alberta’s youth to come together from every corner of the province once a year to discuss their perspectives and ideas on how to improve education.
This year, we will bring together 200 students, aged 14 to 19, to meet with Alberta Education. Students will have the opportunity to learn more about, and provide input on, the work and initiatives going on within Alberta Education. We also offer a concurrent conference for chaperones where we will highlight initiatives and give opportunities for input into the future of education in Alberta.
Check out the draft agenda below for more information.
To ensure full provincial representation, there are 40 student seats available for each zone, and representation from a single school/group may be limited to 4 participants. We are looking for students with different backgrounds, opinions, and experiences. There is no fee to attend the conference and meals will be provided for the duration of the conference. We will provide public transportation on Greyhound buses and accommodations for out of town participants and their chaperones.
The application is now online! Your application is not complete until we receive your signed Parent/Guardian Consent form with the completed chaperone information. Every student participant regardless of age (14-19) must come with a chaperone. A chaperone can bring a group of students when required.
Please send us your signed consent form as soon as possible. We must receive your completed consent form by 4:30 p.m. February 28, 2014, but the sooner the better! The Speak Out team will send a prize to the first 50 students that submit their signed consent forms. The Conference fills up fast so apply early to avoid disappointment!
