Our club is seeking candidates to send to RYLA this year. Can you help us? 

Every year, District 5970 & 6000 join forces to host Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) at Grinnell College. RYLA is a weeklong, life-changing leadership training program where students are given the opportunity to develop their skills as a leader while having fun and making connections. 
As the sponsoring Rotary Club for the Interact clubs at Mt Vernon High School and Washington High School, we want to send one student from each of the two schools to RYLA in July 2024. In order to choose the best candidate from each school, we are accepting applications for sophomore or junior students interested in going to RYLA. The Linn County Rotary Club will conduct a in-person interviews with the finalists. Only one sophomore or junior student will be sponsored to go from each school.
