All State Leadership Conference objective tests will conducted at the home school (or at home, if necessary). Only qualified students based on the attendance policy listed above will be able to compete. There will be NO objective testing conducted onsite at the State Leadership Conference.
In order to be issued a passcode to take an objective test, the student must be properly registered with the $85 registration fee per person PAID before taking the test.
All open competitive events will be conducted at the home school (or at home, if necessary). Students will be able to register for a maximum of 5 open competitive events (each event will be 50 questions with a maximum of 45 minutes test time).
Those events that are individual/team events with role plays will be testing earlier so that they are aware they are finalists and must be present onsite to participate in the role play.
All performance events will be administered onsite at the State Leadership Conference. No will be no exceptions. There will be preliminary rounds on Monday, April 11, and final rounds on Tuesday, April 12. There will also be final rounds for certain events (with no preliminary rounds) either Monday or Tuesday.
Any individual who is eligible to attend the SLC based on the above criteria AND pays the $85 registration fee is permitted to attend the State Leadership Conference. There will be an extensive, robust leadership development program aligned with the Pennsylvania Career Education and Work Standards. Students who meet the criteria will receive documentation to place in the CEW portfolios at their home schools.
We know that there will be schools that will not permit their advisers/students to travel to Hershey or stay overnight. As a result, a student who participates in an objective test is not required to come to Hershey (unless a finalist in a role play event), but we certainly hope they will so that they can participate in the leadership program, the officer elections, and the Awards Program. Even if the student does not come to Hershey, he/she is eligible for any and all awards announced at the Awards Program as if they were there in person. They do not lose their eligibility for any awards, nor does that keep them from being eligible to compete at the summer’s National Leadership Conference in Chicago.
Any event that requires a performance will require the student to come onsite to Hershey to participate “live” in the performance in front of the judges. There will be no exceptions or remote participation in these competitive events. It must be live, and students/advisers or parents must be prepared to have the students in Hershey for the published performance schedule. Knowing that schools may not permit overnight stays, provisions can be made for parents to bring the student to Hershey for the live competitive event and then leave. However, the student must be present at the published performance times OR be available to be sequestered for those events that require being sequestered.
