Wheatland wishes to congratulate our two KEY Leadership Conference winners: Judson Hibbs, a junior at Norwich High School, and Tamara Rodriguez, a junior at Scott Community High School.
Hibbs and Rodriguez were selected to serve as our two delegates at a statewide leadership conference this summer. Upon completion, each will receive a $1,000 scholarship!
An interactive experience, the Kansas Electric Youth (KEY) Leadership Conference will be held in a virtual setting this year, providing each junior high school student with leadership learning opportunities, engaging speakers, and dynamic activities.
For more than 60 years, electric cooperatives across Kansas have recognized outstanding high schoolers by providing a valuable leadership experience for exceptional teens. Networking is always a big part of our cooperative youth programs, as delegates connect with other like-minded, high-achieving youth. Through the 2021 virtual leadership experience, our selected students can get to know their peers across the state through mentor groups and off-line chats.
In addition to the virtual conference and local scholarship, each of our delegates is also eligible to apply for an annual $1,000 state scholarship and a $10,000 national scholarship, only available to Youth Tour alumni!
