RENTON The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association is now accepting applications for the 2017-19 Leadership through Education, Activities and Personal Development Committee.
Applicants must be current sophomores entering their junior year in the fall of 2017. Students who exhibit leadership qualities and are actively involved in athletics and activities are urged to apply.
Eight incoming juniors will be selected to join the committee and will serve a two-year term spanning their junior and senior years.
The committee meets 5-6 times throughout the school year to engage in leadership activities, visit with guest speakers and collaborate on various service projects. All travel expenses associated with attending the meetings are reimbursed by the association.
The summer after their junior year, committee members attend a summer retreat designed to strengthen leadership skills and set committee goals for the upcoming school year.
If committee members meet all criteria expected of them over their two-year term, they receive a $500 scholarship to the institution of their choice upon graduation.
In addition to the following applying online, applicants are asked to submit a short, creative video personal statement.
