The deadline for the Texas Farm Bureau 2013 Youth Leadership Conference, scheduled for Monday through Friday, June 17-21, at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, is fast approaching.

Eligible students entering the 11th or 12th grade in August 2013 are selected by their county Farm Bureaus. Those students must possess good character and the desire to enhance their leadership skills. They should be in the upper 30 percent of their class scholastically. Students who have attended previous Youth Leadership Conferences are not eligible unless they have been selected as a junior counselor. Deadline for applications is Wednesday, May 1.

The topics of free enterprise, constitutional government, leadership, goal setting, family, and self-awareness will be explored during the week-long seminar.

A student does not have to be a Farm Bureau member to attend the conference, but must become a member to compete in the Free Enterprise Speech Contest. The contest begins with giving five local speeches on free enterprise. This enables the entrant to be eligible for the district competition. The Free Enterprise Speech Contest scholarship at the state level includes $4,000 for the winner, $2,500 for the runner-up, $1,500 for the four finalists, and $1,000 each for the remaining seven district winners.

For more information, contact the Wilson County Farm Bureau office in Floresville at 830-393-2481 or the La Vernia office at 830-779-4300.
