Step 1: AAUW members volunteer to serve on selection teams October-December.
Step 2: AAUW NJ Tech Trek Leadership team contacts teachers and principals of 7th grade girls in (December-January).
Step 3: Teachers nominate one prospective camper per school by Deadline closed on February 16, 2018, using the first half of the “Tech Trek NJ 2018 Nomination and Application Form.”
Teachers may only nominate one student per middle school. Please coordinate with colleagues to avoid disappointing duplicate nominees. Only ONE will be considered.
Step 4: Teachers notify their nominee and family, verify that they will be able to attend (if selected), and forward their email confirmation to “Edit Response” and families complete the second half of the “Tech Trek NJ 2018 Nomination and Application Form” by March 2, 2018. Only students nominated are permitted to submit an application when their teacher forwards it to Edit Response (continue the application).
Step 5: Volunteers on the Student Selection teams review all applications and invite girls for an interview at the nominee’s schools or at nearby public libraries/community centers or campus locations. Parents/guardians participate in the interviews with their nominees during mid-March through April 8.
Step 6: Campers notified of acceptance (or waiting list positions) and sent registration information via email (April 17). Online registration is due May 1.
Step 7: All campers return core class, permission, and health forms, by the May 12 Meet & Greet. Camp Address: AAUW NJ Tech Trek Camp c/o Stockton University, 101 Vera King Farris Drive, Galloway NJ 08205.
