Rules and Regulations

Because a good understanding prevents a misunderstanding, please note that the rules and regulations of the Mississippi State Youth Conference will be strictly enforced. Conference officials strongly suggest that counselors copy and distribute this list of guidelines to all participating adults, youth and parents:

  • Water-guns, radios, cassette players, headphones, CD players, televisions and all other electronic devices are not allowed at the Conference. If any such items are found, they will be confiscated by Conference Officials and held until the day of departure.
  • All males, youth and adults, must wear ties to Sunday morning services. They will not be allowed to participate in the services if they are not wearing a tie. Knee length shorts are allowed for Friday's activities only. Please note that the dress code will be strictly enforced.
  • All females, youth and adults, must wear knee length dresses, knee length skirts or pantsuits to all of the Conference programs and Sunday morning worship services. Again, knee length shorts are allowed for Friday's activities only. Please note that the dress code will be strictly enforced.
  • Unruly behavior during the Conference and especially during the Pageant will not be tolerated. Offenders will receive one warning. If the unacceptable behavior continues, the offender's parents will be notified and they will be sent home immediately.
  • It is mandatory for all youth and counselors to attend the Conference workshops, classes and evening sessions. There will absolutely be no loitering allowed on the campus. Except in cases of illness, no one will be allowed to remain in their dormitory room while a program is taking place.
  • There will absolutely be no visitation between males and females in the dormitory rooms. Visitation in the dormitories will only be allowed in the lounge or lobby. If a male or female is found in the dormitory room of a person of the opposite sex, their parents will be notified and both parties will be sent home immediately.
  • Each Conference participant is expected to clean his/her own dormitory room upon departure. Counselors, parents and each congregation will be held financially responsible for damages or lost dormitory keys. The cost for lost keys is $25.00. Congregations and parents will be charged accordingly for rooms left in a filthy or unacceptable condition.
  • Eating is not allowed in the Bologna Performing Arts Center (BPAC), where the majority of the Conference's events will be held.

IF WE ALL WORK TOGETHER AND FOLLOW THE RULES, WE WILL SURELY HAVE A BLESSED TIME AT THIS YEAR'S CONFERENCE. MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS EACH OF YOU!
