NetRoots Nation for students

Time magazine calls 2008 "the year of the youth vote." At Netroots Nation, we hope to make every year about successful youth organizing.Because we aim to continually bring new voices into the progressive movement, for the first time ever, we are offering a special student rate for those enrolled at least half-time at a high school, community college, trade school or university.For just $50, you can participate in four days of insightful panels, training sessions and networking opportunities at the grassroots event of the year--the annual Netroots Nation convention to be held in Pittsburgh August 13–16.Click here to get your $50 registration: http://www.regonline.com/nn09.From local campaigns to the past presidential race, youth activists like you have been a vital part of bottom-up organizing efforts. Now that the election's over, it's more important than ever that you remain an active part of the political process.Like always, this year's convention will feature tons of panels, training sessions, workshops and keynotes to help teach you how to be more effective in using technology to influence the public debate. Past gatherings have included a Presidential Leadership Forum that drew seven Democratic candidates, a surprise visit from Al Gore and an interactive Ask the Speaker session with Nancy Pelosi, so what are you waiting for?There are a limited number of student registrations. Click here register now: http://www.regonline.com/nn09.Note: You must provide documentation proving you are at least a half-time student at a high school, community college, trade school or university to qualify for this special student rate. Otherwise, standard conference rates will apply.
