We’re looking for high school students who are interested in public service and leadership
Students who attend our Zoom sessions in October will have a chance to win AirPods and a $1,000 college scholarship!
Guided by our cooperative commitment to community, MVEC has a long history of supporting students in the communities we serve. Iowa’s electric cooperatives are pleased to offer a new opportunity for rural students to learn more about advocacy, electric cooperative career opportunities and the cooperative business model with a three-part webinar series in October. The Iowa Youth Leadership Academy is open to any high school student in our service area (Jackson, Jones, Delaware and Dubuque counties), and they are invited to register at www.IowaYouthTour.com.
Once students register online for the Iowa Youth Leadership Academy, they can attend the webinars from their own computer or mobile device. Each Zoom session will last around 45-60 minutes and focus on a specific topic:
Tuesday, Oct. 5, 7:00 p.m. – Cooperative Business Model
Thursday, Oct. 14, 7:00 p.m. – Rural Iowa Advocacy
Tuesday, Oct. 26, 7:00 p.m. – Civic Involvement and Leadership
At the end of each live session, one lucky attendee will be selected at random to win a pair of Apple AirPods. Students who attend all three sessions will be entered into a random drawing for a $1,000 college scholarship.
During the Zoom sessions, students will be inspired by our line-up of speakers and presenters. Students will learn how to advocate for issues that are important to them and learn about leadership development from a motivational speaker.
