State Conference - The Kentucky Youth Seminar

Junior Leaders work on communicating.

The Kentucky Youth Seminar is where the American Private Enterprise Youth Program really begins to pay off -- literally! Each June, 14 scholarships, totalling almost $10,000, are awarded to Youth Scholars who score the highest in the competition. Two Junior Leaders also get scholarships. Additionally, top Youth Scholars and Junior Leaders are selected for an expense-paid trip to the National Institute on Cooperative Education

During the seminar, particpants continue to gain a better understanding of American business by solving problems as officers and directors of corporations and cooperations. Workshops help prepare them both for college and for business with leadership training, communication training, interviewing skills, money management training, and transitioning from high school to college.

The materials for the Kentucky Youth Seminar are available here for you to download to your computer or to print out (you will need to have Adobe Acrobat to view them). Be sure to bring them with you to the seminar!

Youth Scholar Materials for the State Seminar

At the Kentucky Youth Seminar, Youth Scholars will be assigned to either the XYZ Cooperative or the PDQ Corporation. Your Extension Leader will tell you to which board you are assigned before leaving for the seminar. The materials here will give you a chance to be better prepared to compete for the scholarhips.

Because of their experience the previous year and the new leadership roles expected of them, Junior Leaders will be assigned as a consultant to at least one board, but may be assigned to multiple boards. Junior Leaders who prepare for both XYZ Cooperative and PDQ Corporation boards are greatly appreciated.

Adult Counselors should also be familiar with the board material to help answer questions as they arise.

Please bring all of the material with you to seminar.

The material on this page has everything needed by Youth Scholars, Junior Leaders and Discussion Leaders. Acrobat forms are Reader enabled and may be saved in Acrobat Reader as well as Acrobat Pro. Extension Agents have additional material available on the American Private Enterprise System UK Canvas site (www.uky.edu/Canvas) or by contacting ukapes@lsv.uky.edu.
