Audrey Walton Youth Leadership Conference
Web Posted: 2017-05-10 00:00:00

Started in 1995 as a program of the Show-Me STATE GAMES, The Audrey Walton Youth Leadership Program provides opportunities for Missouri youth (high school juniors & seniors) to gain skills that will assist them in becoming leaders in their communities and schools.  Named after and generally sponsored by Audrey Walton, a great leader in her own right, this program promotes the importance of leadership, physical fitness, higher education, and a healthy life-style.

During the 3-day conference, we will engage in several activities that will encourage the students to step up and be leaders amongst themselves.  All of the students will participate in both indoor and outdoor team activities.  They will attend a luncheon as well as a dinner banquet where they will have the opportunity to listen to some of our state’s outstanding leaders.  The Audrey Walton Youth Leadership Program is certainly an experience that can help any student become a true leader in their schools and communities.

2017 Conference Dates:  THURSDAY, JULY 20 - SATURDAY, JULY 22, 2017 at the University of Missouri-Columbia.  Participants will stay in MU’s residence halls with an assigned roommate of the same gender and attend the conference’s events at various locations on campus. 

Who Can Apply:  High school students entering their junior or senior year in school for the 2017-2018 school year.

Deadline:  May 12, 2017  *Has been extended to June 1. 

**Due to the large number of applications we receive each year, we ask that students who attended the conference the previous year not apply, in order to give a new student a chance to attend.**    Space is limited.  Applications will be critiqued & participants accepted to attend on a first-come, first-serve basis.
