About Student Activity Conferences

★ They're free! No pre-registration needed!

★ The Conferences begin at 9 a.m. and end by 1:30 p.m. without a lunch break. This allows us greater flexibility in scheduling without sacrificing program quality, and allows schools to return home earlier. Bring along snacks for students who need a sugar or carbo boost around noon.

★ Conferences are scheduled as best as possible to minimize conflicts with national testing dates, band contests and state conventions and to maximize participation by the finest students and teachers in Texas. Pre-registration is not required and there is no fee for attendance.

★ Instructional Sessions are designed for beginning students, advanced students and academic coordinators and coaches. Lectures and demonstrations will be scheduled for all UIL academic contests, including One-Act Play.

★ Conferences feature lectures and presentations by UIL contest directors, college professors and high school teachers. Sessions will include discussions on contest preparation, demonstrations, performances and contest administration. Students may choose from novice and advanced sessions in some academic areas, as well as small-group sessions in specific UIL activities.

★ Bring students! Most sessions are intended to help students begin preparing for high school spring contests. Mark your calendar and plan to attend one or more of these free conferences.

★ Tentative programs for each site will be posted on the UIL web site, and final programs will be available at each site.
