not that

Remember, we will be media-free during National Convention so plan on leaving your iPods, laptops, books, etc. in your suitcase during the week.

There is no homework for this event.

 

  • Please review the Dress Code before packing.
  • Dress is casual for the week, but some people like to dress up a little bit in the evenings.
  • If you’re a candidate, consider dressing in a way that tells people “take me seriously,” especially during primaries, open forum and election returns.
  • Business Casual is optional on the evening when Elections Results are announced.

 

Parents and chaperones

Chaperones play a huge role at TeenPact events and we love having them involved! Because we count on them during the week, we generally have an “all or nothing” policy for Chaperones as well. Special requests can be directed to the National Convention Program Director, Quinton Cools.

 

Other Guests

Because we guard the focus and experience of our Students very carefully, we have a strict visitor policy. All requests should be directed to the National Convention Program Director, Quinton Cools, for approval.

 

Every year, National Convention hosts high-energy, nation-wide elections for a single Presidential/Vice Presidential ticket, four Senate seats, and nine Representative seats. Campaigning at National Convention takes elections to the next level as candidates find creative and ambitious ways to spread their name recognition, making for a fun, exciting, and competitive environment!

 

Each candidate will first have to secure their party’s nomination in order to continue into the general election, making that first primary election a key part of the race! Continue checking in for more information on the 2021 National Election as NatCon gets closer.

 

Can’t make it to National Convention this year? We will be live streaming the event. Check back in for more details.
