For 2021, Kentucky’s Electric Cooperatives is proud to offer students a unique leadership experience.
KENTUCKY’S VIRTUAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
For more than 50 years, electric cooperatives across Kentucky have recognized outstanding high schoolers by providing a leadership experience for rising seniors.
In 2021, due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, Kentucky Electric Cooperatives is offering a virtual Youth Leadership Summit, rather than the traditional Frankfort Youth Tour and Washington Youth Tour.
This dynamic four-day interactive experience will focus on electric cooperatives, leadership, and civic engagement. Like traditional youth tour itineraries, the summit will allow unique access to elected leaders. Summit delegates will compete in a small group challenge to demonstrate what they learned and have a chance to win a scholarship. Everyone who participates in this program will be eligible to apply for an annual $10,000 national college scholarship only available to Youth Tour alumni. There will also be a chance to win a $500 scholarship based on a small group project.
Youth Leadership Summit students will be expected to participate in two-hour video conferences on four Tuesdays June 29-July 20. Attendance will be taken, and prizes will be given at the end of each session. Nolin will cover the cost for those students that are selected to represent Nolin from the applicants.
Sessions will be held from 10am – 12 noon on Tuesdays: June 29, July 6, 13 and 20. Applicants must be able to attend all sessions to qualify.
Should it be deemed safe to gather later this summer a special outing will be planned for students.
