    Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership Semimar

    The HOBY Leadership Seminars are designed for high school sophomores to recognize their leadership talents and apply them in becoming effective, ethical leaders in their home, schools, workplace and community. Currently, nearly 9,000 sophomores, representing as many high schools nationwide, attend HOBY Leadership Seminars each year. The seminars provide a high level of energy, encouragement and motivation, as well as interaction with peers, panelists and volunteers to nurture your future leadership roles. In addition, you will participate in hands-on leadership activities and meet state leaders in such as areas as business, government, education, media and the non-profit sector. Each September, every public, private and charter high school in the country is invited to select and register an outstanding sophomore as their representative to their local state seminar. There are approximately seventy Leadership Seminars held each spring throughout the United States.   

    Middle Creek High School can nominate one sophomore to attend the 2017-18 HOBY Seminar. We will also choose one alternate if the nominated candidate is unable to attend. The date and location for the HOBY Seminar will be announced at a later date, but will run at some point between March and June of 2018.  Application
