Enjoy another look at one of our fabulous panels at the iYouth Conference 2014 on Saturday, February 8th.  For a complete listing of all the sessions and presenters, take a look at our Tumblr page here.  To find more information about tickets, check out the page here.  Since we recently received generous support form the UW HUB, Wells Fargo, and the UW Graduate and Professional Student Senate, we have been able to reduce the price of admission to $35.00 with lunch or $25.00 without for professionals. For students, the cost is $20.00 with lunch or $10.00 without!
