*About Sliding Scale Pricing:

We try to make this gathering as financially accessible as possible – with a sliding scale fee and subsidies available.  Sliding scale allows you to choose how much you are able to pay for registration – between $80 and $140 – depending on your travel costs, and what you or your family can afford. If you are unsure how much you should be paying, here are a few words about sliding scale to think about:

“When I pay more, I know that I am helping others to access the event. When I pay in the middle, I know I am helping the organizers cover costs. And when I pay at the bottom, I know I am letting my community hold me and support me. All of these are wonderful and acceptable ways of participating.” (source)
“Please be mindful that if you purchase a price at the lowest end of the scale when you can truthfully afford the higher ticket prices, you are limiting access to those who truly need the gift of financial flexibility. Being honest with yourself and your financial situation when engaging with sliding scale practices grows strong and sustainable communities.” (source)

Use this “Green Bottle” chart to help you figure out which end of the scale you should be paying at (for youth who are financially supported by your family, please consider your family’s financial situation). The full green bottle (left) indicates a higher financial privilege, and we recommend paying at the higher end of the scale.
