** Application deadline extended until Friday, February 17th. **

Below is the CONA Application for 2017. Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. on February 17.  Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.  If you are selected, you will be notified by February 24, and a $200 non-refundable deposit will be due by March 10.

Submitting an application does not guarantee participation in CONA. Space is limited due to state limits set by the conference. Delegates will be selected to attend based on their application and their participation at the Youth and Government State Convention. Past participation at CONA is not a guarantee of selection.

The application requires you to answer three questions. Please give some thought to these questions before submitting your application.

  1. List up to three topics you are considering for your proposal.
  2. Why would you like to participate in CONA and what do you hope to gain by your participation?
  3. How has your experience in Missouri YMCA Youth and Government prepared you to participate in a national conference?
