This year, pre-registration is available for company directors that would like to reserve their spots but are still gathering student information for a non-refundable fee of $150. Note that this is optional and company directors do not need to pre-register. 

Regular registration to participate will close on November 15, or sooner if we meet our maximum enrollment.

Directors will need to register each student individually under one of four categories:
