Tools for Life Fair

Tools for Life 2024 registration is closed.

We hope to see you there!

Important Registration Information

Tools for Life 2024 will be on March 4 and 5, 2024 in Idaho Falls.

This year, the Fair will be at a different location than the hotel. Please plan accordingly as the two locations are three miles apart:

Event venue: Blue Cross of Idaho Conference Center
Hotel for those staying overnight: Holiday Inn and Suites

When you register a student, additional information will be requested. This includes a student state ID number. Providing this information allows us to access federal funding through Idaho Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, which helps us pay for Tools for Life.

If students are current VR clients, each student will need to meet with their VR counselor to add this service to their Individual Plan for Employment prior to the conference.

All Tools for Life student participants (including secondary transition program members) must have a supervising adult with them at all times. All educators or adults supporting students at the Fair must be registered. A maximum of 10 students per one adult is required.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided on both days.

Fees and Payments

Payments are accepted online. A payment link will be provided after you submit your registration form. Student payments can be made through the University of Idaho Marketplace.

Parents, please note that iPul may be able to cover the cost of your registration fee.

Priority rules

Our venues are strictly limited on space. Students from surrounding regions (within approximately 150 miles of the event) will be given priority for attendance.

If you register a non-local student for the Fair, they will be put on a waitlist and let in only if space allows. If you have questions about priority rules, please email Dan Dyer (

Hotel and Transportation

We can book/pay for students who need sleeping rooms. If you need to book rooms and transportation for your students, there is a place to indicate hotel room and transportation needs on the Student Registration Form.

We ask adults book and pay for their own hotel room.
