Helping today's youth become tomorrow's leaders

The theme of this year’s conference is “I Pledge to Live 100% Naturally High.”  We want to know what your natural high is. What is it that gives you that rush?  What is it that ignites a spark within you? What is it that you are passionate about?

There are two ways to submit an entry for this scholarship, however you may only submit one entry.

**Submit an essay of at least 500 words, no more than 1000 describing to us what your natural high is. (What is it? Why? How does it make you feel?  What do you love about it? ect)                          


**Submit a video entry of you not only telling us what your natural high is and why you love it but also showing us!  Do you love to perform? Do you love to play sports?  What is it that gets your blood flowing and excitement levels up?  Tell us about it and then show us! Video submissions must be between 1-3 minutes. 

If you are unable to upload your video file due to size constraints, please take an alternative step to turning in your video.  We will accept videos via email (, Facebook messenger, or you can even upload the video to YouTube.
