The Intelligent and Talented “IT” Girls Conference is set for June 8 at the Killeen Civic and Conference Center, and the event is hoping to see a turnout of 300 girls this year.

The IT Girls conference is a daylong event for girls ages 11 to 17 and covers a variety of topics. The event will include breakfast, workshops, lunch, dinner, an ice cream social and a dance party.

The goal of IT Girls is “to create an empowering and positive environment for girls in which they are encouraged and taught to dream bigger and think and feel better about themselves,” according to information released by IT Girls founder Aya Fubara Eneli.
