Lodging and Chaperone Information
Each county will be designated hotel rooms and are responsible for making room assignments accordingly. On February 6th, counties will be sent the number of hotel rooms assigned and must turn in who will be in each room to Karla Meikle by February 12th. Room arrangements should be based on two to four youth/room and assigned by age. If a county has only one participant, we will work to match them with another county.
Chaperones will not room with youth participants and will be assigned two to a room. If you wish to room by yourself, you will be responsible for making your own room reservations and your room expenses.
