Yakima Town Hall welcomes middle school, high school and local college instructors to apply for complimentary tickets for their students to attend one of the five speaker events during the 2019-2020 school year. All events are held at the Capitol Theatre and last one hour. Four of the events occur at 11:00 A.M. with one evening event on October 23, at 6:00 P.M.
New applications from teachers can be completed online, beginning May 1, 2019. Please specify your preference for date/speaker using the form below. We’ll do our best to accommodate you, but applying early will increase the odds of getting the speaker of your choice.
Openings will be filled based upon your application date. A confirmation notice will be sent to you as soon as a determination has been made.
Yakima Town Hall has limited grants to assist with the cost of bus transportation for schools. Please comment in the message section of the contact form if you wish to apply for this.
Thank you to our student ticket sponsors!
"Thank you to your wonderful Town Hall. We felt like we were with our own family...warm, welcome, truly delightful. If anyone had told me when I was a little girl in Egypt that I would be speaking to an audience in Yakima, Washington about peace I would never have believed it. Yet I'm so glad to have had the opportunity." - Madame Jehan Sadat, Egypt's First Lady
