Friends! YOU can help us create the next generation of conservation leaders! The nomination process is officially open for the 2018 Wildlife Leadership Academy program. We are seeking referrals from you of motivated students ages 14 to 17 to become Certified Conservation Ambassadors. Nominations are being accepted online at wildlifeleadershipacademy.org/nominate/ ***Please Share - don't let a student miss the opportunity to apply!***
**Letters to nominated students, with an invitation to apply to the 2018 program, will start to be sent out January 1.**
Nominated students should have demonstrated interest in wildlife and/or fisheries conservation. Accepted nominees will become certified Conservation Ambassadors through attending one of five 5-day residential summer field schools which will focus on white-tailed deer, bass, brook trout, ruffed grouse, and turkey. Students in each field school will gain extensive knowledge about wildlife/fisheries and conservation, leadership experience, and communication skills.
**Applicants may be nominated by an adult who knows them well but is NOT a relative (teacher, school counselor, Envirothon advisor, employer, youth group leader, etc.).
As Conservation Ambassadors, students receive a letter of a recommendation for college applications; certification of community service work, and a certificate designating them as Conservation Ambassadors. Students are also eligible to apply for three college credits through Cedar Crest College, return to the Academy tuition free the following year, compete for college scholarships, and join an Academy Alumni Network of 100+ wildlife, fisheries, and conservation professionals.
