2023 Youth Summit: Learn Green, Live Green, Be Green!
The annual Youth Summit brings students, teachers, administrators, and environmental education providers together to celebrate the hard work and successes of the many Maryland Green Schools across the state. This year, our theme celebrates the environmental actions that students participate in today for a greener tomorrow.
We expect 3000 students from across the state in grades Kindergarten through High School to join us as well as their teachers, chaperones, and administrators.
MAEOE is a non-profit organization. We rely on our partners and supporters to help us bring quality programs to educators and youth. There is a $25 fee for exhibitors/green job fair (per organization).
Your fee includes:
- Entrance fee for up to four people
- Opportunity to include information in teacher packet (materials turned in to MAEOE office by May 8)
- Your organization listed in the Youth Summit brochure (register by May 10th for guaranteed printing)
Check back for a more detailed timeline and reminder sheet. Registered participants will be getting detailed information before the event.
Do you have programs for Pre-K to High School students?
Do you help schools in their efforts to achieve Maryland Green School Certification?
Would you like an opportunity to showcase your organization and activities in the state’s largest Environmental Literacy Fair to public and private schools from all over Maryland?
The Environmental Literacy Fair will engage students in short, interactive learning sessions with hands-on activities. You can expect to see most of the students. Please specify MS/HS or PreK- ES or PreK- 12, although some schools will go to all of the activities regardless of age band. Highlight your organization’s programs and resources that support the environmental literacy requirement, MDSE standards and connecting students with nature.
Green Careers Fair
We are dedicating a pavilion geared toward career and leadership development for high school students. We want them to know about the exciting environmental-related opportunities for them and how they can pursue these many different types of career pathways and leadership opportunities.
Please consider having a display and being available to talk with 200 high school students about educational, career, and leadership opportunities. We anticipate over 3,000 to attend the event, overall, and you may see some younger students at your booth as well.
