Q&A

Why does a virtual convention cost money?  Great question! While virtual conventions are much, much cheaper than in-person conventions ($49 vs. $299 for Fall Convention last year), there are still some costs associated with it. The convention fee helps cover convention supplies, programming materials and a swag item, plus software, guest speakers, staffing, a songleader, and more.

 

Is Scholarship Available? Yes! In addition to the scholarship application you can fill out as you are registering, we are excited to connect teens attending their first BBYO Convention to our community partners at Springboard (JUF). Springboard Access Microgrants build off the success of our School Break Program, which has enabled hundreds of teens to find their way into new, immersive Jewish experiences.  Springboard Access Microgrants will be allocated to teens who want to participate in a multi-day virtual or in-person experience during the 2020-2021 academic year.  You can find more information on our website: https://www.juf.org/springboard/Springboard-Access-Grant.aspx
