Key Leader Registration Open - 45 More Students Needed!
by Nicole McDermott

Key Leader is fast-approaching on March 27-29, in Millersville, Maryland, at Arlington Echo Outdoor Education Center. Every Kiwanis Club is being asked to sponsor at least 1-2 students to attend our event in March, and each club that does will receive a Key Leader banner patch!

15 students are registered right now, and, together, we need to ensure that at least 45 more students are registered.

To register, students must have a nominator or sponsor (does not have to be the same person/group). Visit http://key-leader.org/participate/ and click "Register" next to the March 27-29 Arlington Echo listing - follow steps to register online.

The cost is $150/student for those in Key Club or Builders Club (thanks to KIF scholarships) or $175/student for those not in the Kiwanis Family. Meals, lodging, t-shirt, participant manual and more are included in registration fee.

Registration must be completed by Thursday, March 12, or else a $25 late fee is charged per student.

Key Leader is a leadership education weekend for high school students focusing on the concept of service leadership and five principles: integrity, growth, respect, community and excellence. The weekend is casual and includes hands-on exercises; writing and reflection activities; cooperative, team activities; physical challenges and more. Students arrive between 4-6 p.m. on Friday and depart between 11 a.m.-12 noon on Sunday. Key Leader was created by Kiwanis International in 2005. This is a program every Kiwanian can feel proud of.

I want to remind you also that in addition to groups or organizations or schools sponsoring students to attend Key Leader, any individual can personally sponsor in full or in part students to attend. This can be someone you know, work with through Key Club or another high school group, or a child, grandchild, niece, nephew, neighbor, friend and so on. The only requirement is that the student is currently in 8th-12th grade. There is no limit to how many students can attend from the same school.

With right-minded Kiwanians like you, we will reach our goal of bringing 60 (or more!) students together for a life-changing weekend of leadership development, March 27-29! Key Leader is so valuable, but it can only be impacting if we work together to find students to attend.

For more information or questions about the registration process or anything else Key Leader-related, please contact Key Leader District Chair Nicole McDermott at CapitalKeyLeader@gmail.com or 703.917.8877 or Site Coordinator Donna Landis at donna.landis.kiwanis@gmail.com or 301.512.3648.
