The Summit Youth Academy runs from Tuesday, July 21 - Friday, July 24, 2020, at Southwestern College - - For 2020, we are preparing an online and/or hybrid model as a precaution for COVID-19.


How do I apply to attend the Summit?

We're looking for rising junior and senior high school students to attend the Summit 2020!  Student applications will be due any time before June 30, 2020; admissions are made on a rolling basis. You'll be contacted within one month about your acceptance after your complete application has been received.

A complete application includes:

  • Student application form
  • Nomination form from your pastor, youth worker, or church lay member.

Applications and nominations for Summit 2020 must be submitted by June 30, 2020.

What does it cost, and what do I pay?

The Lilly Foundation and the Great Plains conference generously contribute to the overall expense for each participant, and we suggest that each participant pay $100, with each home church contributing $50.  We know that these times have brought financial constraints for many, so this year we are simply asking each participant and each church to pay what they can.
