The Project Play Summit is the nation's premier gathering of leaders at the intersection of youth, sport and health. It's where stakeholders from across sectors take measure of the state of play and chart next steps in building healthy children and communities through sports.

The 2018 Summit will be Oct. 16 at the Knight Conference Center at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. NBA legend Kobe Bryant will join us and other U.S. and international leaders to "Think Global, Play Local." The full day will include panels and plenaries; interactive experiences; breakout conversations; major announcements; and the release of new resources as well as the 2018 State of Play report (share your grades). It begins at 8 a.m. with check-in and breakfast. Programming will start at 8:25 a.m. and go through 4:45 p.m., with an on-site networking reception to follow. The Summit agenda will be announced in September.

Registration for the Summit is sold out. Place your name on the wait list to be notified if space becomes available. 

A separate, Post-Summit Workshop Day for community leaders will be hosted Oct. 17 at the Aspen Institute's headquarters. Limited seats remain.
