The 2021 CONA Application is now online. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.
Submitting an application does not guarantee participation in CONA. Space is limited due to state limits set by the conference, which is a maximum of 30 students per state. Delegates will be selected to attend based on their application and their participation at the Youth and Government State Convention. Past participation at CONA is not a guarantee of selection.
The application requires you to submit an adult reference, which could be your delegation advisor, teacher, coach, community leader, etc.
The application also requires you to answer two questions. Please give some thought to these questions before submitting your application.
- How do you hope to grow during your summer experience and how will you plan to use that growth to impact YAG (if you will be a returning delegate) or to impact your college/university/workplace (if you are a graduating senior)? (200 words or less)
- What is a proposal topic/issue that you are passionate about or would consider for CONA? Why is this an issue you are passionate about?
