All high school sophomores are eligible to attend HOBY State Leadership Seminars, and we welcome students aged 15-17 to our World Leadership Congress.
How to Get Your School Involved
How to Attend If Your School Isn’t Involved
Is your school not able to participate in HOBY? Do you attend a home or virtual school? Are you interested in being nominated by a community member? Our Community Nominations process welcomes students outside the traditional schooling system. Community members, HOBY alumni and volunteers, and parents/guardians are eligible to nominate students for HOBY. Community Nominations open in January each year.
How to Attend the World Leadership Congress
The WLC is open to students aged 15-17. In order to welcome students from around the world, the WLC does not require a nomination to attend. Students are also welcome to participate even if they have not attended any other HOBY programs.
If you have any questions or would like more information about our programs, please let us know. We look forward to connecting with you!
