Hi Jan-  
At this time there is no money in the 2021 budget to hold another Search for Excellence in 2021. If we find a sponsor for a 2021 Search for Excellence we may be able to hold it again.

Hi Ellie- The costs of holding a Search for Excellence range between $3,00- $5,000 which includes prize money, conference fees, technology costs and judging meetings. This would be a great sponsorship opportunity for a donor for the 2021 conference.

Hi Suzanne- Thanks for you interest, signing up for the conference will happen after speakers have been arranged and a schedule for 2021 is confirmed with tours. Look for registration to open in late Spring 2021.
