Youth Leadership Council Application

The S.C. winner will travel (all expenses paid – no charge to the student) back to Washington, D.C, July 14-18, for a leadership conference, and then to Orlando, Florida March 9-13, 2019, 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 a 5-7 minute speech about what inspired them during their Youth Tour trip. Also, the YLC National Spokesperson will be selected to address the membership at the NRECA Annual Meeting and to address the Youth Tour delegates the following year.
