I'm writing on behalf of the co-coordinators of the 2017 Student STEM + Entrepreneurship Conference.
Your proposal so far looks great! Thank you so much for submitting. We would like to remind you that those eligible to present are students from sixth grade and into the college level. If you are so eager to present your work, you can ask a college student to present.
Thanks for your cooperation. We're excited to further review your proposal!

Nancy: this looks terrific, but you're likely to hear from the student organizers that presenters need to be students... Hope you'll do this for one of our other events! (http://www.learningrevolution.com).
Thanks so much for your reply. I love your conference idea! If you ever include elementary or gifted we would love to present. :)
