Student Program

We know that the students (and educators) who attend the Texas Tribune Festival are the future leaders of Texas and beyond. We've crafted an enhanced student experience to help you get the most out of the Festival, including a student lounge, opening pizza party and special student-only events. 

Students and educators can attend the Festival for only $50. Email [email protected] from your school-affiliated email address to get started.

Can't afford the registration fee? Volunteer instead and attend for free!


Volunteering is a great way to experience the Texas Tribune Festival for free! Our volunteers make the Festival possible, helping to manage daytime programming, documenting the event through photography and video, and overseeing our special events. In addition to a free badge, Festival volunteers receive a special commemorative gift for their participation in making the fourth annual event its strongest yet.
