How to Register
2018 CHOICES Conference registration will open on November 1, 2017
Welcome to the Registration and Event Page for the 2018 CHOICES Conference, we have an amazing conference planned for this coming February 20 & 21, 2018 (8:30 am - 2:30 pm each day).
Registration for the CHOICES Conference is done by schools (teachers or administrators) and NOT by individuals (parents or students). If you are a parent, please note that school administrators throughout the Greater Edmonton Area will be be emailed to inform them when registration for the CHOICES Conference will open, but feel free to encourage them or your child’s grade 6 teacher to apply to come.
There are a limited number of spots available to each school district so register early as registration is based on a “first come-first served”. Note that registration is not considered complete until all forms and payment have been received by the WISEST office.

Please remember which date (February 20 or February 21) you select as your preference. Once we receive this portion of your registration, WISEST will strive to be in contact within 5 business days to confirm if you have received "reserved spots" (which is based on the availability of spaces) or if you have been placed on the "waitlist". We will also confirm your selected date and provide a payment link. If you receive the "reserved spots" email confirmation, you will need to complete STEP 2.
Step 2 - Student Information & Payment
If you have received the "reserved spots" email confirmation, please finalize your registration by completing step 2 (Registration Forms and Payment):
Download, print, and fill out the 'Step 2 Registration Forms' (available below). Please return these completed forms to WISEST by mail no later than December 1. These forms must be originals (we cannot accept faxed or emailed forms) and must be accompanied with an online payment or cheque.
