AKKA WKC Youth Forum 2006

For those coming to the AKKA Youth Forum 2006 without ID, those that are considered youth as stated on their ID, and those who hide their ID's when asked.

Our goal is to make the forum so enticing that you are the ones motivating your parents to come to the conference and they are not the ones dragging you.

To maximize the benefits for each of the attendees, the "Youth" category up into three levels -
a. 6-12
b. 13-18
c. 18+
