Collect student information needed for registration by having your selected student complete the HOBY Registration Worksheet. Then register your student online at www.hoby.org by using your HOBY school ID and password. Enter all of the information from the completed worksheet into our secure online registration. (Paper registrations are no longer accepted.) Your school ID and password were sent in your original packet of information but if you need your school’s HOBY ID and password, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “School ID Request” and include the following information:
- HIGH SCHOOL NAME
- SCHOOL’S COMPLETE MAILING ADDRESS WITH CITY, STATE, AND ZIP CODE
- SCHOOL CONTACT’S NAME
- SCHOOL CONTACT’S POSITION (I.E. SCHOOL COUNSELOR, PRINCIPAL, ETC.)
- SCHOOL CONTACT’S PHONE NUMBER
Your school ID and password will be sent electronically to your school contact. Please secure the confidentiality of the school ID and password as only school personnel should register students online.
The cost of a youth attending the leadership seminar is $395. For the first student registered from each school, the registration fee is $225. Additional students are allowed to attend at the full fee.
The only other expenses students are responsible for is transportation to and from the seminar, and personal spending money for optional photos and souvenirs. The registration fee covers liability insurance coverage, volunteer/staff training, public relations, marketing materials, communications, technology, and software for HOBY’s online registration, website development, and maintenance and staff support to the volunteers.
If your school is unable to pay the small fee associated with HOBY programs, please consider a Booster/Activity club, the PTA, or other creative options in the community for sponsorship. Finally, parents of the selected student can elect to pay the fee. Please note that your representative is not officially accepted until the registration fee is received.
