NGS in Richmond is just around the corner, and boy am I and my kids really excited about it. Yep, they will be attending their 2nd national conference with me. Well, just for the Saturday Youth Workshop this time and not the whole shebang. Unfortunately May is statewide testing for Virginia which means no missing school to attend an awesome event with your mom.
Did you know that there is a youth workshop planned? How about a student rate of $50 for the conference? Well… there are! The Saturday program sounds amazing and I know my kids have already said it looks good to them too. However, that may because it is a chance to hang out with other kids and not their mom. You know how embarrassing moms can be right?
It is a free event to those who sign up before April 22nd. Space is limited though so make sure that you sign up soon! Still need more information? The schedule was released on the website and I copied parts of it below. You can see the full schedule here along with who you should contact about signing up your kids, grand-kids, nieces, nephews, or other youth in your life.
