Students invited to apply for leadership opportunity and scholarship

Updated: Feb 21

By Doug Graham, Heartland Rural Electric Cooperative

Heartland Rural Electric Cooperative's strong tradition of promoting youth leadership will continue with $500 scholarships and entry into an exclusive in-person leadership conference this summer.

Two current high school sophomores or juniors who live in households served by Heartland will take part in an all-expenses-paid trip to the Kansas Electric Youth (KEY) Leadership Conference and will receive $500 scholarships to further their education.

The KEY Leadership Conference will be held in Topeka in early June and will provide leadership learning opportunities, engaging speakers, and team-building activities. Student-leaders from across the state will tour the Kansas State Capitol and other local attractions. Those selected for this experience also can apply for the Kansas seat on a national youth leadership council.

If you know of a student with strong leadership potential who is ready for new experiences, would like to network with other student leaders, and is willing to learn more about themselves and their communities, encourage them to apply for this incredible leadership opportunity.

The application form can be found at www.heartland-rec.com and must be completed and returned by Friday, Feb. 11.

For more information, contact Doug Graham at dougg@heartland-rec.com or (620) 724-5526.
