Youth Tour – Youth Leadership Council

Welcome to the 2017 Washington Youth Tour Youth Leadership Council Application. Please fill out the fields below so that we know how you plan to represent South Carolina in a Washington leadership conference and at the NRECA 2018 Annual Meeting.

 

The deadline to complete this form is Friday, April 21, 2017.

Youth Leadership Council Application

One student among the Youth Tour delegation will be selected as South Carolina’s representative on the national Youth Leadership Council. The Youth Leadership Council (YLC) is made up of one student from each state. The winner will travel (all expenses paid – no charge to the student) back to Washington, D.C, July 15-19, for a leadership conference, and then to Nashville, Tennessee, Feb. 24-28, 2018, for the annual meeting of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. To be considered for this honor, you must be willing and able to travel to both of these events. During the July conference, each student will deliver a speech in front of the entire group. Even though the February meeting is during the school year, students have always been excused from classes by their schools because of the educational and leadership opportunity provided by this program. Please complete this application by April 21. Applications for the Youth Leadership Council will be judged by the Youth Tour chaperones and narrowed down to a small number of the top candidates. Then after a brief introduction to the group, all students will vote on the ultimate winner.
