Frequently Asked Questions

What should I bring?

All program materials will be provided. We do encourage you to bring a personal water bottle or container if you have one.

What should I wear?

Dress comfortably for the day, but keep in mind you will be interacting with professionals from the university, schools and city organizations and businesses. If you plan to participate in the FoodChain tour, be sure to wear/bring weather appropriate attire for the short walk from our campus.

I don't attend school in the Lexington area, but I am really interested in attending.

If you are visiting the Lexington area that week and really want to attend, contact Diane Fout at (859)233-8133.

Is there a minimum age requirement to attend?

No, as long as you are currently enrolled in high school. However, participants under the age of 18 will need a parent/legal guardian to sign your participation form.

Participants will need to provide their own transportation to and from campus. Parking information will be provided to registered participants prior to the event.

No, we will have your name on our list of registered participants.
