PERMISSION TO DRIVE OR COMMUTE

To help ensure the safety of our participants, the normal policy of the Michigan Interscholastic Press Association is that our youth participants may not drive to, from or on campus. However, we do not want to preclude any participant from the workshop experience if a parent or guardian is unable to drive them to Michigan State.

This form must be completed prior to the start of the MIPA Summer Journalism Workshop by the parent/guardian listed as the youth participant’s emergency contact to allow the participant to drive independently to and from our program.

The participant will be charged a $10 parking fee. PAY the parking fee via check made payable to MIPA or online via credit card at https://mipamsu.org/payment
