Lottery System

We are using a lottery system again in 2018 to determine who can attend EYH. Girls will be able to sign up for the EYH lottery online March 5-9. We will announce the lottery results on March 12. If you are selected for EYH, we will give you instructions for completing your registration.

There will be one lottery for individuals, and another lottery for groups of 2 to 25 girls. Spaces in the conference will be split between the individual and group lotteries in proportion to the number of entrants, so there is no advantage to entering one lottery vs. the other. Each girl can only be entered in one of the lotteries. You will need the following information to enter a girl in the EYH lottery: her name, home address, grade level, ethnicity, and the number of times she has attended EYH in the past.

EYH registration is now online-only; we are no longer accepting paper registration forms. If this is a hardship for you, please contact us and we will work with you to complete your lottery entry and registration.

Conference Fees

There is no fee to enter the registration lottery. If you are selected to attend EYH, the registration fee is $20 per student and is non-refundable. With this payment, the student will receive:

We encourage each girl to bring an accompanying adult to the conference. There is no additional fee for the participation of an accompanying adult. Any girl who does not have an accompanying adult will be assigned a Cornell Buddy for the day. However, we want to open EYH to as many girls as possible, and the availability of Cornell Buddies is a limiting factor on the size of the conference.

Additional adults beyond the accompanying adult can register for $10. Additional T-shirts can be purchased for $10.

Group Leader Responsibilities

Please click here for INFORMATION FOR GROUP LEADERS for EYH 2018.

If your group is selected for participation in EYH, you will be our contact person for all registration logistics. You will pass on information about the conference to your group members. You will ensure that each girl completes her online registration on time. You will submit a single payment to EYH to cover the registration fees for all group members. On the morning of the conference, you will sign your group in at the EYH registration table, and will coordinate the distribution of nametags and folders to your group members. For safety purposes, if you are unable to serve as group leader on the day of the conference please let us know ASAP who the replacement group leader will be. You can be the group leader for only one group.
