REGISTRATION, Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport

Do NOT come before 8 AM because we will not be ready.

There will be a registration packet available for each state team or individual contestant in the lobby at 8:00 a.m. It is necessary for only a coach or chaperone to pick up the registration packet for his or her respective state. The packet contains name badges, admission tickets to the Fair and Exposition Center, and other information. Someone will be at the conference registration table until 1:00 p.m. to hand out registration materials to states that arrive late that morning. Packets need to be picked up by 1:00 p.m. If arriving late, let the committee know ahead of time so arrangements can be made for the packet pickup, and make sure everyone from your state is pre-paid in full.
