SummerFest is an Educational Theatre Conference for Theatre Educators and Future Theatre Educators. This 3-day conference features over 100 sessions of theatre-related educational content. Sessions include everything from script swaps and costume design to tech-talk and lesson plans. Teachers can learn how to run a successful program in a small school or share ideas for set design with their peers. There are opportunities to show off your ideas, learn new ideas, win prizes, network with other theatre educators, and much more.

SummerFest Travel Stipends!

Texas Theatre Educators (and future educators), the TETA K-12 Committee would like each of you to have an opportunity to attend SummerFest and find out what our summer convention is all about.

This year TETA is once again offering Travel Stipends to K-12 Texas Theatre educators to attend the summer convention. Whether you are a first year teacher or a veteran educator... you are eligible to apply for one of the travel stipends.

We would like for educators who have never been to SummerFest to come and see what we offer, and we will give top priority to requests from educators who will be attending their first SummerFest convention. We will award all travel stipends based on need. If you have never attended SummerFest, apply for a stipend. If your school will not pay for a summer workshop or if your theatre budget is already spent, apply for a stipend.

Travel Stipends are $300, and the checks will be made out to you, from TETA. If you are awarded a travel stipend, it can be picked up at the registration area when you arrive at SummerFest.

To be eligible for a SummerFest Travel Stipend, you must be a current member of TETA and you must register for and attend SummerFest.
