We expect the issue to be resolved by end of day Tuesday, July 14th. Please wait and come back on Wednesday, July 15th to complete your Jamboree application. Thank you for your patience.

  • Attention JST applicants: We are aware that the balance due reflected on some JST records is not giving credit for the submitted deposit, making the remaining balance due appear more than it should be. Our team is working to correct the issue. The registration fees for JST have not changed. This will be corrected as soon as possible. When making subsequent payments, you can edit the amount you are paying to correctly reflect your intentions. We thank you in advance for your patience.
