How do we register?

Go to and fill out the registration form. You’ll be asked to list the names of adults and students who will be attending. If you don’t have all that information at the time of registration, please email that information as soon as possible to and to

What else do you need from us before we arrive in Orono?

The Department asks that attending students have a signed media release. Many photographs and videos are taken during the event; media is often present and may want to interview students, so we need media release forms to allow that to happen. A link to the media release form is on this page, in the column at the right, as well as in the registration material. Students without signed media forms may still attend, and their name tags will be coded to indicate that they are not available to be photographed or interviewed.
