The Moose Youth Awareness Program is for Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors that show leadership skills and want to become involved in their communities. Plan now to attend a Moose Youth awareness Student Congress in your area to become involved in this important program.
The objective of the Student Congress is to help students to design, share ideas and solutions in developing and preparing presentations we call KIDS TALKS. These presentations are taken into elementary schools, pre-schools or other organizations that teach 4 – 9 year olds. We target this age group to hopefully plant positive seeds on such topics as self-esteem, abstinence or alcohol and drugs, internet safety, bullying, learning respect for each other, or on any topic that you feel is of concern in your community. If you become knowledgeable and involved in your program, YOU will be a part of helping our future generation make wise choices for their lives.
There will be no expense to you or your family. The Moose Ledges and Women of the Moose Chapters in your area represent the students who attend the Student Congress by paying the registration fee, providing transportation, locating groups to make presentations, and helping with supplies to do interesting and informative KIDS TALKS.
After the Student Congress, we ask that you do a minimum of three (3) KIDS TALKS before February 28, 2013. You will be asked to complete a KIDS TALKS form after each presentation. These reports are then used to judge the students from Virginia who will attend the International Student Congress in May 2013. There will be five scholarships awarded at the international Student Congress: $12,000, $8,000, $5,000, $3,000 and $2,000. The $12,000 scholarship winner also be invited to attend our International Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. As well, each of the top three students from Virginia that are picked to attend the International Student Congress will receive a $1,000 scholarship form the Virginia Mooose Association youth Awareness Program.
