Event Details

Are you ready for a weekend that will be sure to be a BLAST FROM THE PAST? Join other teens from accross Illinois for our biggest convention of the year! Our Invite Competitions are going to be so exciting, you will forget you are on Zoom! You can look forward to connecting with new and old friends during our teen led programs, Shabbat Celebrations, typical convention fun, and competing in our chapter based competitions such as song, dance, art, trivia, and so much more! Will your chapter take home the gold? Don't miss out on this epic weekend to compete with your chapter! 

Cost: $49.00


Why does a virtual convention cost money?  Great question! While virtual conventions are much, much cheaper than in-person conventions ($49 vs. $329 for Invite 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! Please apply for scholarship at In addition to the scholarship application 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:

How do I start preparing with my chapter for competitions? Each chapter plans their own invite prep programs during the months of December and January. Reach out to your chapter leaders for more info about the prep schedule and how to get invovled! Not sure who to reach out to? Email us at [email protected] and we will put you in contact with a teen leader from your chapter. 


When does registration close? Sign up by the end of the day, January 3rd to guarantee you receive a supply kit for the convention and to have enough time to prepare for competitions with your chapter prior to the convention weekend!
