Special Olympics Canada would like to invite you to apply to be a participant at the first-ever Special Olympics Canada Youth Conference. The conference will be held September 5-7, 2015 in Calgary, AB. The goal of this event is to bring youth leaders from across the country together to engage them in spreading awareness about Special Olympics and recruiting more youth to the movement. This conference will be very hands-on and there is an expectation that all attendees will become Special Olympics champions in their communities.

To be eligible to attend, applicants must:
- Be between the ages of 16 and 25 at the time of the conference.
- Be a student, either in high school, CEGEP, college or university.
- Be able to travel alone.
- Be ready to be an active participant during and after the conclusion of the conference.

If you meet these criteria and you are passionate about helping the Special Olympics movement grow, please complete an application before the deadline of June 30, 2015 at midnight. Applicants can expect to hear back about their application the week of July 6-10, 2015. Travel expenses for successful applicants will be covered by Special Olympics Canada.
