The Reptile Youth Alliance Research Conference is a family friendly event that has live animal interactions, vendors, hands-on workshops, exciting speakers, and more! 

Through the annual Reptile Youth Alliance Research Conference, hundreds of the nation’s students are challenged to go beyond their classroom studies to do independent project-based research. They work independently or in teams to address questions in the field of herpetology, a branch of zoology that deals with the study of reptiles and amphibians. 

First place, Second place, and Honorable Mention merit prizes are awarded by RYA for projects in the Junior and Senior Divisions.

Selected Grand Prize recipients are awarded Scholarships and opportunity to study alongside respected scientists and herpetology research experts
