PREPARE YOUTH FOR TOMORROW

by Randy Shannon

That's precisely what this year's Youth Leadership Derby™ will do. Activities on tap will help youth grow their leadership skills, explore secondary and post-secondary education opportunities through hands-on science and communication activities and network with their peers, industry leaders and mentors. 

The site for this year's Derby: Thorp High School, Thorp, Wis. The dates: the evening of Friday, Nov. 1, and Saturday, Nov. 2, with youth released at 4 p.m. Youth Leadership Derby is open to all youth-farm as well as non-rural students, ages 15-18. Registration fee of $100/person covers a day of tours, transportation to/from the tours, training program and materials, food and lodging at the high school gym.
