Please note that the Youth Leadership Kearney selection process is highly competitive, that is done on a blind selection process based on a scoring rubric done by the Youth Committee (A committee of the Leadership Kearney Board of Directors). Application questions are assigned a point value, and selection is based on the total points an applicant receives. This is a highly confidential process. All student's personal information and school identifiers are removed prior to the selection committee's review and are not seen by the selection committee. A third party receives and manages all applications while removing the applicants' identifying information.
All applicants will be notified by mail regarding selection results, no later than December 1, 2022. Chosen candidates will participate in their spring semester of junior year and graduate during the fall semester of their senior year.
